Parents of Slain Spelman Student To Sue


The parents of a Spelman student killed by a stray bullet on the campus of Clark Atlanta University are filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the institution.

19-year-old Jasmine Lynn was killed September 3 leaving her friend’s dormitory after shots were fired during a fight.

Lynn’s mother Constance Franklin blames the University’s poor security for her loss and denounced the school saying, “

“The most basic duty that a school has is to keep students safe. Despite numerous instances of violent crimes being committed against students on CAU’s campus, CAU failed to provide adequate security. If they had simply done this, my child would be alive today.”

21-year-old Devonni Benton is in police custody for the fight on multiple charges including Jasmine Lynn’s murder.

The University has yet to comment.
