Family of girl hit by stray bullet sues GPS tracking company

BALTIMORE — The family of a Maryland girl struck by a stray bullet in 2009 is suing a GPS tracking company that was monitoring the teen who shot her.

The family of Raven Wyatt filed a lawsuit this week seeking $10 million for each of seven claims. The lawsuit claims the GPS company, Nebraska-based iSECUREtrac Inc., knew its product was flawed.

Raven was 5 years old when she was shot in the head by Baltimore teenager Lamont Davis, and she is now disabled as a result of the shooting. Jurors convicted Davis of the shooting, and he was given a sentence of life plus 30 years.

Davis, a repeat offender, was participating in a GPS monitoring program that was supposed to track his movements at the time of the shooting.
