    Victims Plan to Sue Broward Agencies

    NBC 6 Anchor Roxanne Vargas explains how the victims of the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School plan to sue certain Broward County agencies.

    (Published Wednesday, March 7, 2018)

    A 15-year-old who was grievously wounded in the Florida school shooting has filed notice that he will sue the authorities to seek money to cover the cost of his recovery.

    A lawyer for Anthony Borges and his family says the sheriff's office, the school resource officer, the Broward County school system and the principal at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School failed to protect students from a teen-aged gunman who killed 17 people and wounded more than a dozen others on Valentine's Day. Investigators say former student Nikolas Cruz confessed to the shootings following his arrest.

    Attorney Alex Arreaza writes that Borges was hit five times, still can't walk and has "a great deal of difficulty performing rudimentary tasks for himself."
