Concertgoer sues after being shot at Chris Brown nightclub appearance
Paul Briley, one of the five people who were injured during a shooting at R&B singer Chris Brown’s concert at the Fiesta nightclub in San Jose, California in January 2015, filed a lawsuit against Brown recently in a California Superior Court, claiming that the singer and his management failed to provide adequate measures to ensure the safety of concertgoers.
During the event, an unidentified gunman started shooting, causing panic in the crowd. Brown was immediately rushed to safety.
In legal documents obtained by TheWrap.com, the plaintiff, Briley, alleges that it was the event organizer’s duty to increase security at the event due to Brown’s past violent run-ins. Briley adds that state officials should have beefed up security to protect patrons “from the foreseeable risk of injury, violence, fights, riots, and/or shootings that have previously been linked to Brown’s appearances and concerts, and which were reasonably foreseeable at the bash”.
