Shooting victims’ kin suing charity
CHARDON (AP) – Relatives of three teenagers killed in a school shooting are suing a charity that maintains a fund set up to benefit the families and support the well-being of students and others in the affected community.
The lawsuit filed Tuesday against United Way stated more than $950,000 has been donated to the Chardon Healing Fund since the Chardon High School shooting last year. The suit states the families have received less than $150,000 and have had some requests for funding denied.
The suit against United Way of Greater Cleveland and the United Way of Geauga County alleges the trust hasn’t been properly administered.
A spokeswoman said United Way planned to make a statement.
A teenager was sentenced to life in prison for the shootings and has appealed.
