Police Are Investigating Pub Shooting That Left 1 Dead and 10 Injured

According to a news source WSBT 22, at around 2:00 a.m. on Sunday police were dispatched to Kelly’s Pub located on 1150 East Mishawaka Ave for gunshots being fired. At the scene, officers found at least one person who was shot. The victim was pronounced dead at the hospital. Additionally, there have been numerous reports of as many as 10 other people going to local hospitals with injuries that are likely related to the shooting.

The investigation is still underway, but the shooting likely happened outside of the bar due to the road and the parking lot being blocked off. There were at least 50 to 100 people inside and outside of the bar during the time of the shooting.

Authorities are still investigating the shooting and no arrests have been reported.

Can Bar Owners Be Liable for Violent Crime on Their Property?

Attorney contributor and gun crimes injury lawyer Jeff Gibson represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits.

“There are a number of legal options open to victims and their families who were injured or killed due to negligent security on commercial properties. This includes places such as restaurants, bars, and shopping malls. Bar owners must fulfill their legal duty of maintaining a safe property to prevent any violent crime from injuring their patrons and employees. If a bar owner fails to fulfill this duty and a shooting occurs on their property due to their negligence, then they may be held partially liable”, explained Mr. Gibson.

He continued: “In addition, the victim’s lawyer must prove that the shooting was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a bar or its surrounding area had a previous history of violent crime and security measures were not improved, then the shooting may be deemed reasonably foreseeable and the owner may be held liable. Essentially, if a shooting occurs due to negligent security and if it was considered reasonably foreseeable, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.”

If you or someone you know has been a victim to a bar shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a crime victim attorney.
