Suspected Shooter Arrested Following Bar Shooting

According to WAVE, a shooting occurred at the Pitt Stop Pub Grill located at 1710 10th St # 3, Jeffersonville, IN 47130. 

Police responded to a shooting at around 2 a.m. on Thursday, February 3, 2022. They arrived to find the suspect holding the gun and blocking them from getting to the victims inside the bar. When they finally detained 31-year-old Keiare Reed, they were able to get to the two victims inside that were suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were transported to the hospital for treatment. 

Allegedly, Reed got into an argument with a woman inside the bar that became physical, causing two bystanders to intervene, attempting to break it up. At that point, Reed began shooting. One victim was shot multiple times, but both are expected to live. Reed has been charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery, criminal recklessness, intimidation, and strangulation.

Who Can Be Held Liable For a Bar Shooting?

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson represents victims of bar violence and shootings in lawsuits. As an experienced bar shooting victim lawyer, Jeff outlined some legal options for victims shot and injured inside a bar. 

"Bar owners have a legal responsibility to keep their properties safe from preventable dangers. When patrons go to a bar, they expect to be kept secure from reasonably preventable violence. There are many safety measures that a bar owner can implement to reduce the risk of their patrons and staff suffering avoidable injuries. These may include hiring enough trained security guards, installing and maintaining security cameras throughout the property, and having sufficient lighting. These legal duties are referred to as premises liability laws. If a bar owner fails to take the precautions to secure their security, they can be held liable for injuries on their property."

"Premises liability helps to prevent shootings and other violent crimes that are known to plague bars and other establishments that serve alcohol. Most premises liability lawsuits that involve shooting injuries or deaths are due to negligent security. Additionally, if the bar had a history of violence, the owner would be responsible for increasing its security, such as adding metal detectors or conducting coat checks. When a shooting occurs, and the bar owner is found to have known of an increased risk, they could be held accountable and may even need to pay damages to victims. Victims can inquire with an experienced bar shooting victim lawyer if they have the grounds to pursue a lawsuit against a negligent bar."
