NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — A change of venue has been granted in the civil lawsuit filed by the parents of the student shot at a middle school in Noblesville.
The case will now be heard in Marion County.
Last May, Ella Whistler was shot seven times by a classmate at Noblesville West Middle School.
The lawsuit is against the 13-year old shooter’s parents and claims they failed to store and care for their handguns, ammunition and other weapons. The student admitted to the shooting and will be held in a juvenile detention center until he is 18.
