SF State student sues Chris Brown after San Jose nightclub shooting

An SF State student who was shot at a Chris Brown show in San Jose in January filed a lawsuit against both the singer and the night club Aug. 27, the Mercury News reported.

Paul Briley, 22, was one of five people wounded during Brown’s Jan. 10 concert at The Fiesta Nightclub in South San Jose, according to the report.

Court records state that Briley is seeking general and special damages against Brown and Fiesta for negligence, which caused him to suffer “severe physical and emotional personal injuries.” The lawsuit states that both Brown and Fiesta should have provided adequate security for the concert and detailed Brown’s history with violence, including a shooting during a party hosted by Brown in August 2014.

Brown performed at Fiesta for a “Capricorn Bash” birthday party, according to an SF Gate report. Shots were fired at around 1:20 a.m. Jan. 11, wounding five people. Fiesta underwent a 60-day suspension following the shooting in January, according to the Mercury News.
