Family Sues Corrections Dept in Case of Mistaken Identity

Posted: Updated:

TACOMA, Wash. - Relatives of a woman shot and killed by gang members in a case of mistaken identity are suing the state Corrections Department.

William Love says the Corrections Department failed to supervise the felons.

Love's daughter, Camille Love, 20, died in February 2010. Police say while waiting at a traffic light, gang members shot into her car because it was red, a color associated with a rival gang.

Her brother, Joshua Love, was in the car and wounded. He is also seeking damages in the lawsuit.

The lawsuit contends the seven gang members charged were previously convicted felons under Corrections Department supervision. A corrections spokesman declined comment.

Three of the seven charged were convicted of first-degree murder. Two were convicted of leading organized crime. Two remain at large.
