The family of a man who was among six people gunned down at his Minneapolis office last year are suing the company, claiming that it botched the firing of the employee who carried out the attack and should have known he was mentally ill and potentially dangerous.

The lawsuit being filed on behalf of Jacob Beneke's family is the first to come from Andrew Engeldinger's Sept. 27 attack on Accent Signage Systems, said the family's attorney, Phil Villaume.
