NJ.com has reported that two men were shot in front of the Diamond in the Rough bar located at 552 Lamberton St, Trenton, NJ 08611.
A shooting occurred on October 31, 2021, at approximately 12:45 a.m. in front of the bar. Two men were struck by the gunfire. One was shot in the neck and is in stable condition. The other was transported to the hospital, where he later died from his injury. Police are investigating to determine what led up to the shooting.
Attorney contributor Brian Kent is experienced in helping bar shooting victims get the financial compensation they deserve. Brian recently shared some of his knowledge on the legal rights of victims of violent crime, such as shootings.
"When a violent crime, such as a shooting, takes place at a bar or club, law officials must thoroughly investigate the crime. In addition to identifying and arresting the shooting suspect, it's critical to investigate the bar's security measures to determine if the shooting could have been prevented. If adequate security measures were not in place, like security cameras, sufficient lighting, or hired security guards, the bar owners could be held liable due to negligence."
In some cases, bar shootings could have been prevented if adequate security had not been neglected. Bar owners have a legal responsibility to keep their properties reasonably secure to reduce the risk of patrons getting hurt, or worse, killed. In cases involving negligence, bar shooting victims and their families may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit. Victims are heavily encouraged to seek the guidance of an experienced violent crime attorney to determine their best course of legal action. In many cases of negligence, the victim and their family could be entitled to compensation."
