Va. Theater Settles Fatal Concert Shooting Lawsuit

August 11, 2010

The owners of a theater in Norfolk have settled a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a man who was fatally shot during a concert in 2007.

The settlement was filed Tuesday in Norfolk Circuit Court. According to the settlement, the family of Thomas Holmes will receive $1 million from the owners of the Granby Theater.

Holmes was in a vegetative state after he was shot several times during a concert at the theater on March 28, 2007. He died in August 2009.

Joseph Reid III was sentenced to 60 years in prison for the shooting.

About three-fourths of the settlement will be used to pay legal and medical bills. Another $238,000 will go into a trust fund for Holmes' five-year-old son, Dominic.
