Philly rapper Beanie Sigel and a Philadelphia nightclub are among the defendants in a new lawsuit filed by a New Jersey resident who was shot at a party for the rapper.
Tyheem Baker is suing Beanie Sigel, Clear Channel and local Philly radio station, WUSL Power 99 FM over the shooting, which occurred at Club Solo in 2009.
According to the lawsuit, which was filed in the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia County, Baker was invited to the “Beanie Sigel & Friends Birthday Celebration” at Club Solo.
On March 7th, 2009, Baker was shot in the chest outside of the restrooms of Club Solo, leaving him with fractured ribs, and bullet fragments in his lungs.
The lawsuit claims Baker was shot as a direct result of the “joint and concurrent negligent, reckless, intentional, willful and wanton conduct of the defendants.”
Baker claims Club Solo should have known that unknown individual who shot him should have never been admitted into the club with a gun and claims several other violent altercations took place inside the venue.
Tyheem Baker is seeking $50,000 from the defendants, in addition to medical bills and money for pain and suffering.
