Suit Filed By Parents Of Slain USC Students Must Be Amended

LOS ANGELES ( —A judge Tuesday asked that lawyers amend a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of two Chinese graduate students who were fatally shot during a botched robbery in April.

23-year-old engineering students Ying Wu and Ming Qu were killed April 11 while they were sitting in Qu's parked car off-campus in the 2700 block of Raymond Avenue.

The victims' parents sued USC for not disclosing that the campus is in a high-crime area.

Judge Michael Johnson expressed reservations about the parent's arguments and gave their lawyers 20 days to bring an amended complaint.

Bryan Barnes and Javier Bolden have been charged with the killings.
