DETROIT – Salvagio Vonatti, who was shot outside of Gigi’s on Jan. 10, is making “daily improvement,” according to Jeffrey Montgomery, executive director of Triangle Foundation, who told BTL he spoke with a member of Vonatti’s family April 21. Vonatti is now in a Windsor hospital.
“They say that he’s doing as well as can be expected and is making some progress,” Montgomery said. “My impression is that he’s not yet able to speak but that he’s apparently opening his eyes and so forth. Frankly, I didn’t want to press them too much.”
Montgomery said that a tentative trial date for Steven Williams, Jr., the suspect in the shooting, has been set for mid-June.
