PITTSBURGH (AP) -Two former Duquesne basketball players are suing the school over a 2006 shooting that injured them and three other teammates.
Kojo Mensah and Shawn James accuse the university of negligence in the on-campus incident. They are seeking punitive damages.
Mensah and James say in the suit filed Monday that the university failed to provide adequate security at the back-to-school dance on that September night.
They also seek punitive damages for the ``willful, wanton and reckless disregard'' they say coach Ron Everhart displayed after they were shot and injured. Mensah was shot in the shoulder and arm. James was shot in the foot.
