Just before 9:40 p.m. that Sunday, authorities responded to The Masquerade, where a total of four people had been shot. Police have said two of the four victims got rowdy and climbed onto the stage during a break.
“Another patron took issue and an argument ensued,” police officer Lisa Bender said at the time.
The patron pulled out a pistol and fired, according to police.
The suit says crime in the area of the venue, as well as the natural dangers of large concerts where alcohol is served, should’ve put those responsible for the show on notice to have strong security.
“Moreover,” the suit says, “recent, tragic, mass shooting events in nightclubs, schools, and other sensitive establishments across the world, resulting in thousands of needless deaths...clearly demonstrate the severity of risk posed if the Defendants fail to institute critical measures and security safeguards...”
The suit asks for damages determined at trial.
