MANCHESTER - Friends of a man who was fatally shot while driving a friend home in December held a benefit Friday night to raise money for his children.

The Benefit For Danny took place at Milly's Tavern, where instead of a cover charge customers were asked to make a donation at the door.

Danny Langlois was the father of a 3-year-old girl and his fiancee was pregnant with a boy when he was shot in the head around 3 a.m. on Dec. 27.

"We're friends with a lot of people who knew and loved Danny," Milly's manager Olivia Davenport said.

In addition to the donations at the door, a silent auction and 50-50 raffle were planned with all the proceeds to go to a trust for Langlois' children. Several comedians were also scheduled to perform.

There was also a candlelight vigil for Thursday night for Langlois, whose shooting remains under investigation. He was shot in the head while behind the wheel of his friend's SUV near the intersection of Jane and Nashua streets.
