On Friday night, just before 8 pm, July 10th, two people were shot in the parking lot of Buffalo Wild Wings in Hummels Wharf, according to The Daily Item. Following the shooting, a patron intervened and shot the gunman, now suffering from a serious injury. Emergency personnel evacuated the restaurant and the Marketplace and remained in the parking lot during the investigation.

Police later released that the shooting resulted in two people’s death, a woman and a man. The woman, Heather Campbell, was 46-years-old and the man Matthew Bowersox was 52-years-old.

The shooter is in custody, but police have not released the name as the homicide charges are pending.

Legal Options for Victims and Their Families Shot At A Restaurant

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea, an experienced violent crimes lawyer, works with victims of violent crimes in civil suits. In an interview with Brian, we asked him to share some insight to help victims determine their legal rights and whether they can sue a property owner for being shot.

We asked Brian about the legal obligations of restaurant owners to their customers. He replied property and business owners have a legal responsibility to uphold their customers’ safety on their property. Property owners are responsible for providing adequate security. Adequate security can range from security cameras to security guards. If proper security measures are not in place, property owners can be held negligent in a civil lawsuit.

Later, we asked Brian on victims’ legal options and their families of violent crimes at a restaurant. He said, “first the victim and their family would be to secure a crime victim attorney’s services.” He insisted that if the victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable, then the property owner may be considered negligent. An example of a foreseeable crime is a lack of adequate security, and the property owner was aware of previous criminal activity at the restaurant or in the areas. In negligence cases, the victims and their families may have a claim.
