Bar License Suspended After Second Shooting Leaves Two Wounded

WOWK TV has reported another shooting at the Premier Pub & Grill located at 1518 4th Ave, Huntington, WV 25701. 

According to the police, this shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. on March 26, 2022. When police got to the bar, they found two victims, a man and a woman, with gunshot wounds. Both were shot waiting to enter the bar, the man in the leg and the woman in the abdomen. Both were transported to a nearby hospital. 

Due to the increase in crime at the bar, the West Virginia Alcohol Beverage Control Administration chose to suspend the bar’s liquor license during the investigation. This is the second shooting related to the bar in two weeks, resulting in four patrons being shot and injured.

Can a Bar Owner Be Liable for Bar Shootings?

Attorney contributor Paul Bucci is an experienced gunshot victim lawyer in the state of West Virginia. Paul often represents bar shooting victims in civil court. Recently, he explained when a bar owner could be liable for a bar shooting injury

"Owners of bars have a huge responsibility to ensure the safety of their customers and employees. Due to alcohol being consumed on the property, they have a higher risk of violence. By law, bar owners are to maintain that their property is reasonably safe from preventable violence, like stabbings and shootings. However, if a bar patron is hurt or killed in a shooting, it is necessary for an investigation to be conducted to see if the shooting could have been avoided. If the bar owner is found to have failed to provide proper precautions like surveillance cameras, trained bouncers, or ample lighting, they may be held liable."

"Unfortunately, bar shootings often occur as a result of the owner's security negligence. If the bar had previous issues with violence, but the owner neglected to strengthen its security, they may be deemed negligent. Victims and families of bar shootings should speak with an experienced gunshot victim lawyer to fully understand their legal rights to compensation."
