Chicago Nightclub Shooting Leaves One Dead, Three Injured

According to ABC 7, a shooting occurred at the Hush Chi nightclub at 311 W Chicago Ave, Chicago, IL 60654. 

Chicago police said a group was kicked out of the River North nightclub at about 2:10 a.m., which resulted in an altercation outside. With more than 20 people involved in the fight, one pulled out a gun and began firing. An armed security guard returned fire but was shot in the arm. A man and a woman were both struck by gunfire in their legs but were reported in good condition. Another man was shot in the chest, but despite life-saving efforts from the responding officers, he died at a nearby hospital. Police did make an arrest, but the suspect's identity has not yet been released.

Filing Lawsuits for Nightclub Shootings

Our attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced violent crimes lawyer and has represented numerous victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. In an interview, Reed highlighted some of the legal options for victims involved in a shooting and the process for filing nightclub shooting lawsuits.

"Nightclubs and bar owners have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment for their patrons. Ample lighting, functioning security cameras, and trained security guards are just a few measures that property owners could implement to ensure safety. If a nightclub does not have adequate safety measures in place and a crime takes place, the owner may be held liable."

"When a victim is shot outside of a nightclub or bar, they have the right to know if the property owner could have done more to stop the crime. The nightclub owner may be held responsible if they neglected security measures. Additionally, if a crime is found to be foreseeable, the victim could have grounds to file a lawsuit. If the area's crime rates have recently increased, yet the property owner's security measures were not, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. To learn more about their legal options, victims of nightclub shootings or their surviving family members should speak with an experienced violent crime lawyer. The victims and their families may have grounds for a civil lawsuit in cases of negligent property security that could award them compensation."
