Police Seek 3 Suspects in Shooting at Nicky D’s Coney Island That Left 1 Customer in Critical Condition
Fox 2 Detroit reports that on Wednesday at 2:30 a.m. a woman and two men visited Nicky D’s Coney Island located on 15447 W Seven Mile Rd. The group tried to order fried mushrooms, but the employees informed them that the restaurant did not have fried mushrooms. This is when the group became very angry and left the restaurant.
According to an employee at Nicky D’s, approximately 20 minutes later the same group of people returned to the restaurant. They began striking customers with a night stick and then one suspect pulled out a gun and shot a customer in the jaw, who was simply in line waiting for his food.
The victim was hospitalized with critical injuries. Police have yet to locate the suspects who fled the scene in a black Ford F-150 . Surveillance video reveals the two male suspects were dressed in the same white shirt with an unidentifiable logo. If you know any information about the incident and the suspects please contact The Detroit Police Department.

Can Restaurant Owners Be Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents restaurant shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits.
Mr. Kent shares his knowledge about security negligence: “All commercial property owners have an important legal duty to secure the safety of their patrons and employees. Property owners of places such as restaurants and bars must provide adequate security measures to anyone that visits their premises in order to prevent any reasonably foreseeable criminal violence. A crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable if a restaurant has a prior history of criminal violence and no security measures were established.”
He continues by stating, “If a restaurant owner fails to provide adequate security and a violent crime like a shooting does occur due to their negligence, then the owner may be held partially liable. However, the victim’s lawyer must prove that the crime was also reasonably foreseeable. If the incident is proven to be caused by negligent security and deemed reasonably foreseeable, then victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.”
If you or a loved one has been a victim to a restaurant shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim attorney.
