NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — A West Haven woman has sued the nightclub where her daughter was fatally shot last year, claiming its negligence was at least partly to blame.
The New Haven Register reports that Celeste Robins Fulcher accuses Funn House Productions, owner of Key Club Cabaret in New Haven, of allowing the suspected shooter to remain in the club after he was disorderly and disruptive. She’s seeking monetary damages of more than $15,000.
Fulcher’s daughter, 26-year-old Erika Robinson of West Haven, was shot and killed Oct. 26 inside the club.
Adrian Bennett is charged with one count of murder and other charges.
Benjamin Proto, the club’s lawyer, told The Associated Press on Tuesday the club had more than adequate security with eight guards, surveillance cameras and a police officer outside. He questioned why Bennett isn’t being sued.
