According to CBS 2 Chicago, two men walked into the Gotcha Faded Barbershop at 236 North Pulaski Road on the evening of January 16th. Police said the two men walked inside the shop, looked around and left. Shortly after, the two men allegedly opened fire through the door of the barbershop striking a total of five people.

Authorities reported three children, ages 11, 12, and 16, and two men, ages 30 and 40 sustained gunshot wounds. The 11-year-old was shot in the lower abdomen, the 12-year-old was shot in the right leg and the 16-year-old was hit in the knee.

All three of the children were taken to Stroger Hospital of Cook County from serious to critical injuries. One man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital with serious injuries and the other man left the scene in a private vehicle to be taken to the hospital in stable condition.

So far 29-year-old Walter Jackson has been the only person arrested in connection with the shooting. He was charged with five counts of attempted murder.

Legal Options for Victims of Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents people who are victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits and wondering if there are settlements after being shot. Below, he has shared his insight for those who need legal representation in civil court proceedings. Mr. Kent does not represent any of the victims of this shooting.

“The premises liability law was developed to hold property owners responsible for the safety and well-being of their customers and guests. Unfortunately, crimes can occur anywhere at any given time and if a shooting occurs on the owner’s property, they will be held partially responsible if someone is hurt or killed. Property owners should have a form of security to prevent these crimes from becoming deadly. For example, adequate security ranges from well-lit parking lots to cameras with video surveillance. When proper security measures are not provided and someone is seriously injured in a shooting, the property owner can be held negligible.

A civil law attorney must be able to prove that the owner committed an act of negligence by not providing appropriate security. Therefore, playing a part in the incident that caused injury to someone. The lawyer will need to research if the property owner committed a reasonably foreseeable crime; a preventable incident because of past criminal activity in the area but failed to provide security.

When a shooting occurs it’s likely that medical costs and other expenses will rise. More often, family members will help pay the incurred costs due to the victim becoming ill or unable to work. By filing a civil suit against a property owner who acted negligently, compensation may help with the expenses incurred from the incident,” described Attorney Kent.
