Fatal Tacoma School Shooting Brings Wrongful Death Lawsuit

The family of the student murdered in Tacoma, Washington while attending Foss High School has filed a lawsuit against Tacoma School District. The family of the student is seeking $35 million.

According to the Seattletimes.com, the wrongful death lawsuit, filed Thursday, states that the family says the district should have known that the teen accused of the shooting in January of last year was dangerous.

The shooter had attended four high schools previously, and had a history of psychiatric hospitalizations and suffered from hallucinations. He has also spent time in Western State Hospital. He has been charged with murder in this case.

There is a hearing Aug. 29 which may determine whether he’s competent to stand trial.
