SURVIVORS OF THE CLOVIS CARVER LIBRARY FILE A LAWSUIT AGAINST SHOOTER’S FAMILY
CLOVIS (KSMX)- A lawsuit has come from the survivors of the deadly 2017 Clovis Carver Public Library shooting and been served to the shooter’s family.
According to KRQE, the main claim was the fact the “teen’s dad made it way too easy for him to get his hands on a gun. The lawsuit also goes after Nathaniel Jouett’s psychologist, saying he should have done more to warn people about the high schooler’s behavior”.
Noah and Alexis Molina were 10 and 20 years old when Nathanial Jouett opened fire inside the Clovis library two years ago. Noah was shot once and Alexis four times.
Jouett, issued two concurrent life sentences followed by another 40 years in prison for the shooting that left two librarians dead and four others wounded.
Last week, the family filed a lawsuit against Jouett’s father, grandfather and psychologist. According to the lawsuit, Jouett’s father had a substantial amount of guns in his home, one that was a gift from the grandfather, and kept them in an unlocked safe.
Before the shooting, Jouett was seeing a psychologist for his suicidal thoughts. The suit claims the psychologist knew Jouett had access to weapons and was hearing voices but didn’t warn anyone.
