School district added to lawsuit by family of girl shot in Bremerton

The Associated Press

The family of a girl who was wounded when a gun went off in her third-grade classroom has added the Bremerton School District to its lawsuit.

Lawyers for Amina Kocer-Bowman’s family say the district should have known the classmate who brought the gun to class in a backpack was dangerous and that school officials failed to take reasonable safety precautions.

A spokeswoman for the district, Pattye Heuer, says it has no comment on Tuesday’s development.

Lawyers announced their intent to sue the district in August when they filed a $10 million claim against the district. They also are suing the boy’s relatives for allowing him access to handguns.

Amina spent six weeks in a hospital and endured numerous surgeries for internal injuries caused by the shooting.
