JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - -
Attorneys for a northwest Mississippi shooting range are asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear its appeal in case involving the death of a Naval SEAL during a training exercise.

The Mississippi Supreme Court ruled in January that the wrongful-death lawsuit filed the SEAL's family brought was erroneously dismissed by a DeSoto County judge. The Mississippi high court ordered the case to trial.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Shapoor Alexander Ghane Jr. was killed in 2008 when a bullet fired during an exercise struck him in the chest, even though he was wearing a bulletproof vest.

The incident occurred on Jan. 30, 2008 during a close-quarters combat training exercise. The private facility has been used for training by the military and law enforcement agencies for years.
