An accused cop killer is suing his deceased victim and the city of Indianapolis for millions of dollars.

Major P. Davis II, awaiting trial in a state prison for the murder of an Indianapolis Metropolitan police officer in 2014, is suing his victim for $2.3 million.

In a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Indianapolis, Davis claims slain Officer Perry Renn shot him in the back while he was unarmed on July 5, 2014, in an east side Indianapolis alley.

Prosecutors charge bullets from Davis’ semi-automatic rifle killed Renn, who was responding to a report of shots fired during a holiday weekend backyard cookout attended by women and children.

Davis alleges the “Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department used illegal excessive force.”

“Officer Renn discharged his weapon eleven (11) times shooting me in the right cranial, the torso, abdomen and back. (I) recall being shot by the Indianapolis (Metropolitan) Police officers ‘all at close range while unarmed,’” reads the complaint.

“I don’t think this case has a chance in the world and I’m a defense lawyer,” said attorney Jack Crawford.

Crawford isn’t connected to the case, but says the civil suit by Davis has no legal merit, which may be why Davis is serving as his own attorney.

“No lawyer with any sense would represent him on this civil suit. That’s why he doesn’t have one,” said Crawford. Read more: Follow us: @MailOnline on Twitter | DailyMail on Facebook
