MARYSVILLE, Wash. (AP) - The families of teenagers shot by a classmate at Marysville Pilchuck High School have filed a lawsuit seeking damages from the school district and the shooter’s father.

The Daily Herald of Everett reports (http://bit.ly/22ocwvP ) that the lawsuit was filed against Marysville School District and Raymond Fryberg this week and claims that school officials could have prevented the shooting.

School officials say the lawsuit is misplacing blame.

Gia Soriano, Zoe Galasso and Shaylee Chuckulnaskit, all 14, and 15-year-old Andrew Fryberg were killed in October 2014 after Jaylen Fryberg invited them to sit with him at lunch. Wounded in the gunfire was 15-year-old Nate Hatch.

Jaylen Fryberg fatally shot himself after shooting the others.

Raymond Fryberg was convicted in September of six counts of unlawful possession of a firearm. His son used one of his weapons in the school shooting.
