The alleged shooter who was killed while trying to bring weapons into the Forsyth County courthouse Friday had filed several lawsuits against the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office alleging corruption.
In the federal complaints filed in 2013 and 2014, Dennis Marx accused the FCSO of using excessive force and conducting unconstitutional searches and seizures. The allegations stem from an FCSO raid on Marx's home in 2011, which led a grand jury to indict him on drug and weapons charges.
In a series of e-mails sent to CBS46 investigator Jeff Chirico last year, Marx alleged that the FCSO confiscation of his possessions left him broke and alone.
"My family, my life savings, my investments and work product. All GONE!" wrote Marx in September 2013.
Marx was scheduled to appear in court at 8:30 Friday morning to face the charges.
