Bystander Killed in Fatal Philadelphia Bar Shooting

According to NY Daily News, a suspect has been taken into custody following the fatal shooting at the Philly Bar and Restaurant located at 2417 Welsh Road Suites #3-4, Philadelphia, PA 19114. 

On July 6, 2022, U.S. Marshals arrested 47-year-old Anthony Nelson at Harrah’s Casino in Atlantic City. Nelson has been charged with the shooting death of a 21-year-old woman. On June 28, 2022, Nelson and two other men were kicked out of the bar for an altercation erupting after being told they could not use the pool tables during a pool tournament. The men left the bar and walked to a truck in the parking lot. Allegedly, Nelson pulled out a gun and fired 15 shots into the bar. One of the bullets fatally struck the innocent bystander in the head.

Who Can Be Held Liable for Fatal Bar Shootings?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent often provides legal aid to the surviving family members of shooting victims. During a recent discussion, Brian elaborated on who can be held liable for fatal bar shootings.

"Ensuring the safety of patrons and staff at bars and nightclubs is the owners' legal responsibility. In order to comply with premises liability laws, bar owners are required to provide adequate security to reduce the risk of preventable dangers such as shootings. Adequate lighting in the parking lots, security cameras around and inside the property, and trained security personnel are some of the security measures that might be put in place. The bar owner can be considered negligent if they fail to provide sufficient security."

"If the crime was found to be reasonably foreseeable, victims injured or killed in a bar shooting may be able to file a lawsuit against a negligent bar owner. If the bar owner had failed to improve its security despite knowing criminal activity was increasing in the area, the crime could be seen as predictable. Extra patrolling of law enforcement or installing metal detectors may be included in updated security. The surviving family members can learn more about their legal options by consulting with an experienced shooting victim attorney."
