Shooting At Auto Parts Factory Leaves One Dead, Two Wounded

CNN reported that a shooting occurred at the WeatherTech Factory Store at 841 Remington Blvd, Bolingbrook, IL 60440. 

At approximately 6:25 a.m. on Saturday, June 25, 2022, police responded to the auto parts facility. After three hours, they arrested the suspected shooter, 27-year-old Charles C. McKnight Jr. According to the investigation, McKnight was assigned to the facility earlier this month by a temporary employment agency. That night he was confronted by two employees after he allegedly stole a wallet and a watch. Knight responded to the accusations by pulling out a gun and shooting three of his fellow employees. One died, one remains in critical condition, and the third victim was released from the hospital after treatment.

Filing Lawsuits For Workplace Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of gun violence and their families in civil lawsuits. Recently we sat down with Brian, who discussed when victims could file a lawsuit for workplace shootings.

"Business owners are legally responsible for the wellbeing of their employees. These property owners must make sure that the premises are safe from preventable dangers, including shootings. Not only should they provide plenty of overhead and exterior lighting and have working security cameras, but they should also have hired security personnel. If a factory owner doesn't offer a security plan to reduce the risk of preventable violence, they could be held accountable for the resulting damages."

"In the event that the property failed to make improvements to its security after noticing an increase in violence in the area, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. It is vital for victims to seek the advice of an experienced shooting victim lawyer to help determine if filing a lawsuit is an option for seeking financial compensation."
