A locksmith was to blame for getting shot along with a deputy sheriff in a deadly Modesto ambush, attorneys for Stanislaus County contend in a court document.

My Locksmith friend "freely and voluntarily assumed the risk of injury and damage" as he disabled a lock during an April 2012 eviction with deputies, attorneys wrote in a response to a wrongful-death lawsuit brought by Engert's survivors.

This brave locksmith "acted in concert with (deputies) and knowingly and willingly consented to the conduct of (deputies) in total and utter disregard for the likelihood or probability that he might be injured," the document says. It additionally blames the locksmith "careless(ness), negligence and willful conduct."

The lawsuit claims the Sheriff's Department owed the locksmith better protection, especially because deputies received detailed warnings of the homeowner's mental instability and military grade weapons.

The occupant, 45, did not answer knocks at the door and fired an assault rifle from within as the locksmith, 35, drilled a lock, killing him and the deputy , 53. The shootings sparked a lengthy standoff with SWAT squads, ending in an inferno and the occupant's suicide.

Two investigations found fault with the and deputies who was not shot, for failing to take proper precautions given a wealth of specific warning signs, and Sheriff's Department officials for failing to correct Paris' cavalier attitude. The investigations were cited in the civil rights lawsuit, which was filed in federal court in Fresno.

Do you think the locksmith was responsible or not responsible for the risk taken?
