A settlement has been reached by the family of a woman killed in a drug-related shooting. The family will receive $1 million from the property owner in the wrongful death lawsuit. Danielle Melton, who was 19 years old, was an innocent bystander who was gunned down August 20, 2011, as she sat outside an apartment complex.
It was alleged in the lawsuit that the property owner failed to provide security at the crime-ridden apartment complex even though it was in a high crime area. Two men were killed in the shooting and a young infant recovered from a gunshot to the head. The lawsuit was filed by Michelle Rockett, the victim’s mother, who is the guardian of the victim’s twin boys. Fred Tromberg represented the family and did a very good job.
