A: Provided that your son was a "licensed driver," it should be covered to the policy limits. This is an unusual claim.

A: You would want to speak with a member of the Ind. Assn for Justice --they give free consults. The problem is that the shooter's insurance won't cover because it's an intentional act. Your insurance may or may not , and then it's a question of state law as to if they have to. Some underininsured and uninsured policies exclude intentional acts.
