After racist shooting that killed 3, family sues Dollar General and others over lax security

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Family members of three Black people who were killed this summer at a Dollar General store by a shooter who had posted racist writings have filed a lawsuit. They allege negligence, saying that lax security led to their loved ones’ deaths.

In contrast, no security was in place to stop the shooter at the Dollar General store, the lawsuit argues.
