Suit: Hospital wrongly released man hours before 3 slayings
DAYTON, Ohio – An Ohio man previously imprisoned for killing his pregnant girlfriend was improperly discharged from a hospital hours before fatally shooting three people, a wrongful death lawsuit alleges.
The lawsuit by the three victims' estates says the defendant, 62-year-old Muhammad Shabazz Ali, was evaluated at a Dayton hospital last year after saying he needed medicine so he wouldn't hurt anyone, the Dayton Daily News reported .
The lawsuit alleges a behavioral center and a social worker failed to properly record and inform others about Ali's previous conviction and that a hospital psychiatrist broke protocol in approving Ali's release.
Hours later, Jasper Taylor, 74, Tammy Cox, 53, and Michael Cox, 25, were shot to death. More
