At approximately 1:30 a.m., an argument, believed to be over a soccer game, led to two victims being shot at the restaurant. Both victims were transported to the hospital in critical condition, but later it was confirmed that one died. 

Some patrons held down the shooter as they waited for the police to arrive. He was arrested, and the gun was recovered. He is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Can I Sue For a Being Shot in a Restaurant?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced gun crime lawyer who represents victims of violence along with their families in civil lawsuits. Marc has shared his insight regarding the legal rights of restaurant shooting victims to pursue a lawsuit.

"Restaurant owners, like other commercial property owners, are legally obligated to provide adequate security for their patrons and employees on their property. These safety measures are to reduce and prevent violent crimes from occurring on the property. They may include security cameras and having well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide reasonable protection and someone is shot on the property, they may have grounds to pursue a lawsuit against the liable restaurant owner."

"Furthermore, an experienced lawyer will try to prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. This may include investigating for a history of violence or crime increase in the area, neglected by the restaurant owner. If the shooting could have been prevented by additional security, the property owner may be held liable for the crime. An experienced violent crime lawyer can guide victims and their families to determine their best course of legal action."
