Just weeks after he was sentenced, Meek Mill was slapped with a wrongful death lawsuit stemming from a December 2016 shooting. The incident occurred during a Meek concert in Wallingford, Connecticut, where Jaquan Graves, 20, and Travis Ward, 30, were fatally shot.
According to TMZ, Graves’ family is suing Meek and Roc Nation for unspecified damages. The plaintiffs claim Meek and the entertainment company should be held accountable for Graves’ death, as they “allowed thugs to remain on the premises, after exhibiting disorderly, disruptive, argumentative, angry and/or agitated behavior toward patrons.”
The family of the second victim, Ward, filed a similar lawsuit against Meek and the concert venue earlier this year. They argued the Toyota Oakdale Theatre was not properly staffed with security on the night of the deadly shooting. The family claims the venue should’ve prepared for potential violence, considering Meek’s music.
