York shooting victims launch lawsuit

York University shooting victim Annie Malik; Toronto, April 10, 2014

The two victims who were injured in the shooting at York University in February spoke out about their ordeal today.

They and six other victims are suing the school for $20.5 million dollars in damages. Shooting victim Annie Malik says she was shot in the leg and has difficulty walking. She says she doesn’t know when, or if, it will properly heal.

Malik says her injuries have also taken a toll on her mother. “To see her get up every time to give me a glass of water when she needs me to do that for her, it really frustrates me because I don’t do drugs, I don’t hang out with the wrong crowd, and this happened to me. And i’m, in a way, useless for now.”

Toronto Police identified Kemon Edwards, 22, as the shooter. He faces multiple charges including discharging a firearm and aggravated assault.

  1. This is is just another disgusting attempt to become rich off the taxpayer. These are girls are the only very epitome of greed and misguided attempt at having a privileged life without having to earn it or work for it. The only courts had better do the right now thing and dismiss this frivolous lawsuit.

  2. 20.5 million….milking the system! I can only assume tuition will have to increase because of this greedy lawsuit! look at all the people in the BOSTON bombing last year, they lost limbs and who are they going to sue?….the marathon? This man had a concealed weapon, that went off because he tripped, so I don’t understand how this woman can blame this on lack of campus security. ” it really frustrates me because I don’t do drugs, I don’t hang out with the wrong crowd, and this happened to me”, many horrible things happen to people everyday and they don’t do drugs or hang with the wrong crowd. All I see is an excessive MONEY GRAB!
