The mother of one of the victims in the deadly mass shooting at an Antioch Waffle House is suing Vanderbilt University Medical Center, saying two doctors there made errors that killed her son, the Tennessean reports. Victim Akilah DaSilva's autopsy lists his shooting wounds as the cause of death, but the latest lawsuit brought by his mother Shaundelle Brooks argues he was improperly treated after he was rushed to the Vanderbilt emergency room. The suit asks for up to $80,000,000 in damages.
