Bar Shooting Leaves One Woman Injured

According to NBC Philadelphia, a woman was hospitalized after being shot multiple times inside the restroom of a North Philadelphia bar Tuesday night, Philadelphia police said. The incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. at Jimmy's Lounge located in the Feltonville neighborhood at 4766 Rising Sun Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19120. 

According to investigators, the victim, a 35-year-old woman, was in the restroom with a 39-year-old woman when at least one gunshot was fired. The 35-year-old woman suffered three gunshot wounds to the arm and hip, and was taken to the hospital, where she underwent surgery and was listed in critical condition. Police said she was expected to survive.

The shooting suspect was found by responding officers armed with a handgun about two blocks away from the bar on Mascher and Loudon streets. She was taken into custody and was cooperating with authorities, according to police. Her identity and potential charges have not yet been revealed.

Police were interviewing the woman and the 15 customers and employees inside the bar at the time of the shooting. They also analyzed surveillance video from inside the bar as the investigation continued overnight.

Who Is Liable For a Bar Shooting?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent frequently represents victims of bar and lounge shootings in Philadelphia. During a recent conversation, Brian discussed who can be held liable for a bar shooting.

"Bar and lounge owners have a responsibility to ensure the safety of their visitors and employees. There are several ways owners can protect their business, such as installing security cameras, providing adequate lighting both inside and outside the bar, and having trained security guards. If these safety measures are not taken, an owner can be held accountable for any crimes that occur on the premises."

"Oftentimes bar shootings happen because of the property owner's negligence. For instance, if the bar owners were aware of rising dangers but failed to take steps to improve safety, this would be an example of a foreseeable crime. Victims and their families may be able to pursue a civil lawsuit if a foreseeable crime happens as a result of inadequate security. If this is the case, victims should speak with a violent crime attorney to learn more about their legal rights to compensation."
