Meek Mill Facing Lawsuit Over Deadly Connecticut Concert Shooting


(AllHipHop News) Meek Mill is reportedly being sued over violence that took place outside his concert in December. 

According to the Hartford Courant, the family of Travis Ward has filed a lawsuit against Meek after the 31-year-old was killed in the Toyota Oakdale Theatre parking lot.

The Oakdale is also named in the suit because the venue is accused of not providing proper security for the event.

In addition, Meek’s music is being cited by the family’s lawyer as to why the Oakdale should have ensured a more safe space for attendees.

“With song titles like ‘body count’ and ‘oh kill’em’ that praise indiscriminate killing and mayhem, the potential for tragic incidents like this should have been properly anticipated and planned for by Meek Mill, his concert promoters and the Oakdale Theatre,” said attorney Joel Faxon.

Nathan Mitchell was also injured during the incident, and he is a party in the suit as well.

The defendants are seeking more than $15,000 in damages.

In total, four people were victims of the shooting.

Twenty-year-old Jaquan Graves was killed and another individual was injured.

No arrests have been made in the case so far.
