$100 million lawsuit filed in Newtown shooting

Posted: Updated:

(KYTX) - A Connecticut lawyer wants to sue the state over the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.

Irving Pinsky says the state failed to provide a safe setting. He's pursuing 100-million dollars in damages on behalf of an unidentified 6-year-old girl who survived the massacre.

Pinsky says the girl heard gunfire, screaming, and conversations over the intercom and was left with emotional scars.

26 people, including 20 children, were killed at the Newtown school two weeks ago when 20-year-old Adam Lanza entered the building and opened fire.
