School district negligent in 2013 Taft High shooting, civil jury decides

The Taft Union High School District was negligent in a 2013 classroom shooting that injured a student, a civil trial jury announced Wednesday, according to a KGET-TV report.

Attorney Daniel Rodriguez represented the family of injured student Bowe Cleveland.

"The jury did absolutely the right thing," Rodriguez told The Californian. "Despite a mountain of warning signs, the district let this happen."

Rodriguez had argued that the district didn't take reasonable precautions before Bryan Oliver shot Cleveland at school, KGET-TV reported.
