At around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, April 4, 2022, police were called to a social club regarding two men fighting. They arrived to find a victim with multiple stab wounds inside the building bathroom, with a large knife still in him. He was taken to the hospital but died from his wounds. 

The New York Post reported that police had identified 55-year-old Shin Bin Weng as the suspected stabber. Video surveillance showed Weng getting two knives from a kitchen supply store nearby.

Justice For Families of Victims Fatally Stabbed 

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced violent crimes lawyer who regularly works with victims of violent crimes in civil court cases. Below, Laurence provided some information regarding the legal options available for families of victims fatally stabbed.

"Commercial property owners, including gambling dens and social clubs, have a legal duty to provide a safe property for their guests and staff. Property owners should implement basic security to reduce the risk of preventable crime, like shootings and stabbings. These can include security cameras, sufficient lighting, and even hired guards. If a stabbing occurs, the property owner may be held accountable if they have neglected to offer security precautions."

"In cases of fatal stabbings, a property owner may be considered liable to pay damages if the crime was foreseeable and they were found to be negligent. If crime in the area was rising, but the owner failed to increase its security, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. The victim's family members are encouraged to hire an experienced violent crimes lawyer to discuss a possibility of filing a civil lawsuit and their changes for compensation."'
