Family Sues Over Theater Shooting

Attorneys representing the family of a teenager who lost an eye in a Christmas day shootout in a Long Island theater have filed a $100 million suit naming theater owners National Amusements and a private security firm as defendants.

In a suit filed in Queens County Court, Zalman & Schnurman, a New York lawfirm representing Turane R. Haines and his mother, Shirley Haines, maintained that NA and Aero Investigation & Security Services were negligent. The shooting was at the Sunrise Cinemas in Valley Stream during an opening-day showing of “The Godfather Part III.” One teen was killed and others injured after a fight broke out between youth gangs. According to the suit, the theater was overcrowded and management should have been aware that a problem was developing.
