Parents of dead Spelman student from Kansas City plan to file lawsuit
ATLANTA | The parents of a Spelman College student killed by a stray bullet while walking on the Clark Atlanta University campus have announced plans to sue the university for neglecting to provide adequate security.
Bunnie Jackson-Ransom, spokeswoman for attorney Rod Edmond, says Constance Franklin and Clint Lynn of Kansas City will hold a news conference Thursday in Atlanta just after they file the lawsuit in Fulton County State Court. Jackson-Ransom says the pair are suing for wrongful death in the Sept. 3 shooting of 19-year-old Jasmine Lynn.
Lynn was killed outside a Clark Atlanta dorm when a fight broke out nearby and shots were fired. One person has been charged in the shooting.

Clark Atlanta spokesman Larry Calhoun declined comment because he had not yet seen the lawsuit.
