Families of Uvalde Shooting Victims Sue Gunman's Estate for $100 Million

Four families whose children were seriously injured during the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde are suing the estate of the gunman for more than $100 million and for answers about how he gained access to the school.

Law enforcement shot and killed the shooter, Salvador Ramos, after he opened fire inside adjoining classrooms on May 24, killing 19 children and two teachers.

The children being represented are among the 17 others injured during the shooting.

Attorney Thomas Henry filed the suit on behalf of the families who say they are seeking compensation for physical and emotional damage stemming from the shooting.

The complaint says Ramos, "intentionally injured these young children, stole their innocence, and forever changed their lives."

Henry and his team are also leading an investigation into the shooting as to how Ramos was able to buy an AR-15 and hundreds of rounds of ammo as well as how he even entered the school.

"This initial lawsuit will allow us to discover evidence and possibly add other parties to the lawsuit, if necessary...The discovery process will focus on the school system, law enforcement, social media, and gun and ammunition manufacturers."

This suit also comes after another one filed by Alfred Garza, the father of Amerie Jo Garza, one of the children killed.

In Garza's suit he hired the lawyers who successfully sued the manufacturer of the gun used in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

Last week, his attorneys filed a letter requesting documents from Daniel Defense, the manufacturer of the gun used in Robb Elementary School.
