A Monroeville woman has sued WAMO-FM (106.7) and a nightclub from which the radio station was broadcasting when a shooting occurred.
According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Davina Wilson is demanding damages from the Strip District’s Touch nightclub and WAMO over the July 31, 2006 incident in which eight people were shot, two fatally.
Wilson was on the second-floor balcony at the time and suffered bullet wounds to her left leg and foot, according to the newspaper.
The lawsuit was filed in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court.
One witness told the Post-Gazette at the time the scene inside Touch was like something from of the movie Scarface.
Touch, which markets itself as an “extremely upscale” club catering “to 20-somethings dressed to impress,” opened in 2003.
During the summer of 2006, WAMO was sponsoring Sunday night dance parties at Touch where ladies drank free from 10 p.m. until midnight, according to the P-G. About 400 people were inside the club when the shooting began.
According to the Trib, Wilson’s lawsuit alleges that Touch and WAMO failed to provide enough security for patrons.
