It's not uncommon. Once he's dead, he's a "lottery ticket" for a certain kind of person. Those who didn't know the side of him you saw but loved him, will want revenge; and there's a certain type of lawyer who puts his conscience in his wallet. I've done both officer-involved and civilian self-defense shootings where the estranged spouse suing the deceased for divorce, in one case with a restraining order to stop his domestic violence, sued the person because of their loss of his love and companionship and "loss of consortium."

best,
Mas
