Chris Brown is being sued by a fan who was shot at one of his club appearance.
Paul Briley was one of the five people hit by bullets during a party hosted by the 26-year-old in San Jose in January.
Lawyers for the 22-year-old college student blamed the Grammy winner and the Fiesta Nightclub for failing to implement adequate security, including searching ticket-holders for guns.
Briley, 22, argues that the club should have had proper security measures in place, such as metal detectors, and searching “bags and/or guns,” due to similar incidents at events hosted by Brown.
“This shooting should never have happened,” Briley’s attorney, Richard Alexander, said in a statement. “Brown’s managers and the concert promoters know that violence follows in Brown’s wake.”
Five people were wounded and none of the shooting victims sustained life threatening injuries, including Briley who was shot in the foot.
He is suing Brown and the club to recoup lost earnings and medical expenses, as well as past, present, and future physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering, including fright, shock, terror, and post-traumatic stress of being shot.
