Shooting at Nightclub Leaves One Critically Injured 

According to Chicago Sun-Times, a man was shot inside The Point located 1565 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60622. 

Just after the nightclub closed at 5 a.m. on Sunday, February 6, 2022, gunshots were fired into the entrance. One man was shot in the eye and rushed to a nearby hospital. The victim is not assumed to be the target. A squad car sitting outside the nightclub had just left for the night when a shooter from across the street fired into the club before running away. 

Violence is a reoccurring theme at the nightclub. Just months before, on October 10, 2021, a mass shooting occurred that left one shooter dead and four victims injured. Chicago Police Supt. David Brown shut down the Wicker Park nightclub after deeming it a threat to the public. If the club's owner, Jun Lin, fails to reply, the club could be closed for as long as six months.

Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot Inside Bar

Contributor and experienced gun violence attorney Brian Kent represents victims who have suffered injuries during violent crimes in Illinois. He fights to get gunshot settlements for victims in civil lawsuits. Brian explained that nightclub shooting victims could file a suit during a recent interview. 

"Nightclubs can often have issues with violence and criminal activity due to the consumption of alcohol. These incidents can range from fights to stabbings and even fatal shootings. Nightclub owners have a legal obligation to reduce the risk of injuries caused by these preventable dangers by providing security measures. These measures could involve hiring trained security equipping the property with sufficient lighting and security cameras. If the bar owner fails to fulfill this commitment to keeping their property secure and their patrons safe, injured victims can hold the nightclub liable for any damages they suffer due to this neglect."

"Not all nightclub shootings can be predicted or would be considered foreseeable, but many may have been prevented if the nightclub's security was not neglected. If the nightclub had a history of violence, yet the owner failed to make safety improvements, the owner could be considered negligent. Victims injured in nightclub shooting can seek the advice of an experienced gun violence attorney to guide them through their legal options."
