According to CBS News, a shooting occurred at an annual celebrity bash at The Mansion at Glen Cove located at 200 Dosoris Ln, Glen Cove, NY 11542.
On Sunday July 10, 2022, three people, including a security guard, were injured after being shot in the lobby of the hotel during an annual pool party. They were released from the Glen Cove hospital after being treated for their gunshot wounds.
Detectives say that shots rang out at around 5 p.m. as a security guard was escorting people out of the annual pool party known as the Big Fendi Celebrity. They are still investigating the incident and have yet to make any arrests.
According to Glen Cove Mayor Pamela Panzenbeck, the permit application for the party was declined, making it an illegal party. The event, which had between 150 and 200 attendees, served alcohol and had amplified music.
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced shooting victim lawyer in New York. Laurence often represents shooting victims in civil lawsuits seeking financial compensation. During a recent discussion, he shared information regarding the legal options available for victims shot at a hotel or party venue.
"Hotel owners are responsible for ensuring the safety of the attendees of events held on their property. Large events that include alcohol have an increased risk of violence. Hotel owners can reduce the risks of preventable dangers by offering hired security personnel, maintaining sufficient lighting, and having ample security cameras across the property. Insufficient security can result in partygoers getting hurt by violent crime, such as shootings."
"When people are hurt or killed at a hotel or venue event, law enforcement will conduct an investigation to identify the perpetrator and file criminal charges. However, the hotel can also be investigated to determine if sufficient security was offered at the time. If a hotel was aware of the heightened risk, they would be responsible for ensuring their security was increased as well. Victims may have grounds to file a civil lawsuit in cases involving security neglect. Victims are encouraged to consult with an experienced shooting victim lawyer to fully explore their legal rights."
