Man Shot at Charleston, WV 7-11 Files Premise Liability Lawsuit

Charleston, WV 7-11 where man shot

Charleston, WV: On December 16, 2020, Andre H. Joyner went to the 7-11 on East Washington Street in Charleston, West Virginia to get a cup of coffee.  Subsequently, an employee and several other people got into an altercation and somebody fired a gun.  Unfortunately, a bullet struck Mr. Joyner in the back.  

Joyner laid on the ground bleeding and struggling to breathe.  Joyner was transported to a nearby hospital and had to undergo surgery for his injuries.  Fortunately, he survived.

In his personal injury complaint, Joyner alleges that the Charleston, West Virginia 7-11 was negligent in providing adequate safety for the their business patron. His claim appears to be based at least in part on the allegation that there had been over 100 9-1-1 calls involving this 7-11 in the year prior.  

Joyner filed his lawsuit in Kanawha County, West Virginia seeking compensatory and punitive damages.  Circuit Judge Jennifer Bailey has been assigned to this case.
