MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - The city of Westover is seeking the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by the mother of a man killed in a 2014 shooting spree.

Brenda Kay Dusenberry’s lawsuit alleges that city workers gave the gunman assistance and encouragement so he could track and kill her son, 28-year-old Michael Frum.

The Dominion Post (https://bit.ly/1MrqBzy ) reports that the city has asked the Monongalia County Circuit Court to dismiss the case. The city argues that if information given to Hunt was publicly available, city employees didn’t act negligently.

The city also argues that there are no specific, factual allegations regarding how employees acted negligently or within the scope of their employment.

Frum was among four people fatally shot by 39-year-old Jody Lee Hunt on Dec. 1, 2014. Police say Hunt then killed himself.
