Homeless Shelter Sued for Wrongful Death

Via Overlawyered comes a story about a suit against a St. Louis church being sued by the family of a 21-year-old who, while a client of a homeless shelter, was stabbed to death by another client.

[The plaintiff] alleges in her suit that the center, at 1411 Locust Street, failed to check or screen residents for weapons and did not have guards or a security system in place. She also alleges that residents were not warned that there was no security and that shelter officials did not respond quickly enough to help Dunlap.
