Daniels also allegedly shot the other victims. Police say 31 people were on the train at the time of the shooting, and 10 were in the line of fire.
Both lawsuits were filed Wednesday in Fulton County Superior Court. One was filed by Alishha Clopton, Hunnicutt’s wife, the other by Johnesia Cofiled, who was severely injured in the shooting.
The lawsuits name both MARTA and Daniels as defendants. They say MARTA failed to provide adequate security at West Lake station. Among other things, they also say the agency knew of prior criminal activity that created hazardous conditions on the premises and failed to warn patrons.
The lawsuits seek unspecified compensation for personal injuries, pain and suffering and other damages.
MARTA did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the lawsuits.
