Police Looking For Suspects in East Hills Bar Shooting

Police have yet to arrest a suspect in a shooting that took place at a nightclub called Lady Di's in the East Hills section of Pittsburgh. Investigators have said that 45-year-old John M. Faulk was shot and killed at around 2:30 a.m. outside of Lady Di's on Frankstown Avenue. A bullet also went through the exterior of the bar and struck a woman sitting inside of Lady Di's.

Both victims were brought to nearby hospitals. Faulk was initially listed in critical condition but passed away from his injuries. The woman, who has not been identified, was listed in stable condition.

No arrests have been made and the Pittsburgh police have asked anyone with information to come forward.

Bar Owner Liability For Shootings and Stabbings

Attorney contributor and gun crime injury lawyer Guy D'Andrea, has offered some general information on the legal options available to violent crime victims and their families:

Bar owners have a duty to protect their customers from foreseeable dangers. This includes making sure the premises are safe from the risk of preventable violent crime. When a shooting or stabbing occurs at a bar or nightclub, it's important to ask if there were adequate security measures in place to reduce the risk of such crimes.

In some cases, negligent security is partially to blame for shootings, stabbings, and other violent incidents. When this happens, those who were injured and the families of those killed during the violent incident may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner.

Premises liability for bar shootings and stabbings is a complicated legal concept. In order to determine if your family has grounds for a lawsuit against a bar owner for a violent incident, we advise speaking with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
