The family of a Chicago Public School student who was killed after a basketball game has filed a lawsuit against CPS, Chicago State University and the city.

17-year-old Tyrone Lawson was shot and killed January 16 of last year, after a game between Morgan Park and Simeon High Schools at Chicago State.

Police say a fight broke out after the game, and the violence spilled outside.

Two men have been charged in the shooting.

The lawsuit claims there was not enough security at the game even though police and CPS knew rival gang members would be there.
