HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Families of two of the 20 children killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre are suing the town of Newtown and its school board.

The wrongful death lawsuit served on the town on Friday alleges security measures at the Connecticut school were not adequate.

The lawsuit says classroom doors could only be locked from the outside with keys, leaving teachers vulnerable to intruders. The suit also says the front of the school didn’t have security glass to protect against gunshots.

The plaintiffs are the parents of slain children Jesse Lewis and Noah Pozner.

Town Attorney David Grogins declined to comment on Monday.

The gunman, Adam Lanza, shot his way into the school on Dec. 14, 2012, and killed 20 first-graders and six educators before killing himself.
