CHARDON, Ohio (AP) — The family members of three teenagers who were killed in an Ohio school shooting claim in a lawsuit that the school did not have adequate security to protect students from the gunman.
The suit also claims the alternative school that the shooter attended did not properly evaluate his danger to others. The lawsuit, filed Thursday, came on the second anniversary of the shooting at Chardon High School east of Cleveland.
Prosecutors say T.J. Lane was waiting for a bus at the school when he fired 10 shots at a group of students inside the cafeteria in February 2012.
Lane later pleaded guilty and is serving three life sentences.
The school's superintendent said he cannot comment on the lawsuit. Messages seeking comment also were left with Lake Academy Alternative School where Lane was a student.
