6 Wounded in Shooting & Stabbing Outside Bruxelles Lounge

Four people were shot and two others were stabbed outside of Bruxelles Lounge in the Bronx on Saturday, August 18. The violence began at around 4:30 a.m. outside of the club. Two men were shot in the leg, one was shot in the arm, and another shot in the head. Two men were also stabbed – one in the back and another in the head.

The six unnamed victims range from ages 22 to 27. A 24-year-old woman was listed in critical condition after being shot in the head.

Police believe the incident began with a fight inside Bruxelle’s Lounge. They believe the argument spilled outside at around 4:30 a.m and that the shooter was in a car passing by.

Police checked over 30 surveillance cameras as part of their investigation. Four people were also arrested for running an unlicensed club.

Can Nightclub Owners Be Held Liable For Shootings?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville shares some thoughts on civil lawsuits for violent crime victims:

Violence at bars and nightclubs is a common problem in the United States. Far too often, we hear stories of shootings and stabbings in the nightlife scenes of our cities. Many of these crimes could not have been predicted, but some may have been preventable by better security at the business where they occurred.

Property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe from foreseeable dangers, including an unreasonable risk of violent crime. When a violent incident occurs at a bar or nightclub, we should ask if ownership failed to meet this legal obligation. For example, bars with a history of violent incidents should make changes to prevent future violence, such as requiring customers to be searched for weapons upon entry.

Assigning premises liability to a property owner for a violent incident is a complicated process. Violent crime victims who are curious about their legal options should speak with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
