Wrongful Death Suit Over Concert Shooting Settled

Thomas Holmes wasn’t expecting to get involved in a gunfight when he settled in to enjoy a live musical performance at the Granby Theater in Norfolk, Virginia in March 2007 – but that’s exactly what happened. After a dispute with a fellow concertgoer, Holmes was shot several times, sustained major injuries, and soon fell into a persistent vegetative state from which he never recovered. He died two years later. The wrongful death suit brought against the club owners by Holmes’ surviving family members resulted in a settlement of more than $1 million, some of which will be placed into a trust fund for Holmes’ young son, Dominic.
