The Nashville, Tennesse victim, Akilah DaSilva mother has filed a $100 million wrongful death lawsuit on Wednesday against the alleged gunman, Travis Reinking, and his father, Jeffrey Reinking. Documents were obtained via Huffington Post. In those documents, it states, “Travis Reinking used an AR – 15-style rifle during the April 22 attack that left four people dead and four others injured.”

Brook has accused the father and his son of “unconscionable conduct” for Jeffrey’s decision to give his son the firearm even after law enforcement revoked Travis’ rights to legally possess a gun after several run-ins with officials. The attorney of Brook, Daniel Horwitz released a statement to HuffPost, “let this lawsuit serve as a stark warning. If you entrust someone that you to be both dangerous and mentally unstable with one [of] the most efficient purveyors of death in modern society, you will be held personally accountable for the consequences.”

Akilah DaSilva was known for being a local musician and his mother wants to honor the late 23-year-old’s legacy by preventing future mass shooting attacks from happening.
