Family sues shooting range where 9-year-old killed instructor with Uzi
The child shot and killed Charles Vacca in August 2014.
“The Uzi was an inappropriate and unsafe weapon to entrust to a 9-year-old girl like the Child Shooter, thereby creating an unreasonably dangerous and unsafe environment for individuals in the area, including Charles J. Vacca, Jr.,” states the lawsuit, obtained by The Washington Post.
The Last Stop shooting range (aka “Bullets and Burgers”) is the defendant in this suit, filed Friday. The girl and her family don’t have to worry about legal ramifications, though. Plaintiff attorney Marc Lamber told the post that his clients feel the girl and her parents “have been scarred enough, they’ve endured enough, by having to live through this.”
