A lawsuit brought by the family of a Kansas murder victim against his killer has been settled.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that Douglas County court records show the case against Danny W. Queen was dismissed after an undisclosed settlement was reached.

The 38-year-old Eudora man is serving nearly 19 years for the murder of 32-year-old Bo Hopson in 2017. A jury convicted him of second-degree murder as well as attempted second-degree murder and attempted voluntary manslaughter for trying to shoot two other bar patrons.

Queen was kicked out of the bar after making offensive comments to women. When Hopson offered to find Queen a ride home, Queen pulled a gun and shot Hopson, who was the bar’s security guard.

The victim’s father, Scott Hopson, sued after Queen’s arrest.
