Family members of three teens killed in a northeast Ohio school shooting say in a lawsuit that the school didn't have enough security.

They also say the alternative school that the shooter attended didn't properly evaluate the risks posed by the student.

The lawsuit filed Thursday came on the second anniversary of the shooting at Chardon High School east of Cleveland.

Prosecutors say T.J. Lane fired 10 shots at a group of students inside the cafeteria in February 2012. Lane went to the high school each day to catch a bus to Lake Academy Alternative School, where he was a student.

Lane later pleaded guilty and is serving three life sentences.

The school's superintendent says he can't comment on the lawsuit. Messages seeking comment also were left with the alternative school.
