Family of TSU Student Shot Outside Residence Hall Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

cropped-Fotolia_72101625_XS.jpgThe family of a Texas Southern University freshman shot to death outside a residence hall has filed a wrongful death lawsuit.

On October 9 last year, Brent Randall was heading to class in the afternoon when he was shot to death outside his dorm room in Courtyard Apartments.

The family alleges that the university failed to provide sufficient security to the students on campus. According to the lawsuit, another student was shot outside the same apartment complex less than 12 hours before Randall was shot and therefore, the university “knew or reasonably should have known of the dangerous condition of the premises.”
