In the suit, the Carter family claims that some of those gang members started a fight and threatened Knight, which led to him retaliating and coming through the Tam’s Burger’s parking lot, killing Carter. Tam’s Burgers is named in the lawsuit as well due to the family feeling that since criminal activity occurs there regularly that there should have been security on the premises.
Knight, who is facing murder and hit-and-run charges in Carter’s death, is due back in court on July 7th .
