Man in Critical Condition After Shooting at MVP Bar
Fox 6 Now reported that on Sunday around 1:30 a.m. a fight broke out inside MVP All American Sports Bar located on 3214 60th St, Kenosha, WI. Witnesses say fights were happening inside and outside of the bar when multiple gunshots were heard. Police tried to enter the building, but the crowd trying to exit bar was too chaotic. Officers had to pull people out of the door because they were getting injured while trying to leave.
When police could finally enter the bar, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the neck. The victim was hospitalized and is in critical condition. Authorities do not yet know what started the dispute that caused the shooting and stampede. No suspect has been identified.

Legal Recourse For Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families
Attorney contributor Brian Kent at crimevictim.Attorney represents victims of bar shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent shares his insight on the legal options available to these victims.
“All owners of commercial properties must fulfill their legal duty of keeping anyone who visits their property safe from preventable hazards. This includes providing adequate security such as hiring security guards or installing metal detectors. If a commercial property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured due to their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner”, stated Mr. Kent.
“However, that is not all. In order for a property owner to be considered liable for a violent crime, the crime must be deemed reasonable foreseeable. An example of a reasonably foreseeable crime would be if a shooting occurred at a bar with a previous history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were made. Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting happens at a bar due to inadequate security, then the bar owner may be held partially liable”, explained Mr. Kent.
If you or someone in your family has experienced a similar situation, you can speak to a crime victim lawyer to discuss your legal options.
