Family Of Young Shooting Victim Sues GPS Tracking Company

BALTIMORE (WJZ/AP) — A young girl gets caught in the crossfire.  Now, her family wants to hold an unlikely group responsible for her shooting.

Raven Wyatt’s family is suing a GPS tracking company for more than $70 million. The lawsuit claims the GPS
company, Nebraska-based iSECUREtrac Inc., knew its product was flawed.

They claim Lamont Davis’ ankle-monitoring device wasn’t working when he left his house and started shooting.

Wyatt was 5 years old when a stray bullet hit her in the head inside her house. She still suffers from her injuries today.

Jurors convicted Davis of the shooting, and he was given a sentence of life plus 30 years.

Davis, a repeat offender, was participating in a GPS monitoring program that was supposed to track his movements at the time of the shooting.
