Fatal shooting at Alabama fish camp leads to suit
MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The parents of a teenager fatally shot at a southwest Alabama fish camp have filed a $1 million suit against men involved in the shooting and the Alabama Marine Police.
The suit by Summer Moody's parents came after Baldwin County authorities said they do not plan to file criminal charges against the men involved. The 17-year-old was shot on Gravine Island on April 15 and died 10 days later in a Mobile hospital. Three other 17-year-olds who were with her were charged with burglary.
The Press-Register reports (http://bit.ly/P4kALP ) that Moody's parents filed suit Tuesday against three men on the island when shots were fired, the property owner, and the Marine Police for allegedly telling the other defendants that they should take matters into their own hands to stop burglaries.
