A San Antonio judge has ruled that victims of a mass shooting at a Texas church can move forward with a lawsuit against Academy Sports & Outdoors.

The gunman, who shot up the church in Sutherland Springs in 2017, bought the weapon and ammunition he used at an Academy store.

More than two dozen people were killed in the incident.

Today’s ruling clears the way for the families of the victims to potentially bring their case against Academy Sports & Outdoors before a jury.
