The fan claims it was Brown's fault he was shot due to lack of security

Early in January, five people were shot and wounded with non-life threatening injuries at one of Chris Brown’s concerts held in San Jose, Bay area. Paul Briley is one of the victims, and he's suing

Briley’s was shoot in the foot and his lawyers blamed the R&B star and the Fiesta Nightclub for failing to have adequate security, including searching people for guns, reported the Daily Mail.

They go on to claim that the organisers should have known there was a high probability of violence because of Brown's history and that the club was oversold beyond capacity, the report continued.

'From 2009 to 2015, Brown's reported public appearance were marked by violence, establishing a reasonable likelihood of violence at Brown events and confirming the hallmark of a Brown event would foreseeably be a wake of violence, guns and/or shootings,' claimed the lawsuit.

Briley is reportedly suing Brown and the club to recoup lost earnings and medical expenses, as well as 'past, present, and future physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering, including fright, shock, terror, and post-traumatic stress of being shot', the Daily Mail said.

The club accepted a 60-day entertainment ban and revocation of its alcohol license by San Jose police and state authorities

Chris Brown's publicist, Nicole Perna said in a statement: "It is a poor reflection of our society that violence is so prevalent and it is always a tragedy when someone is physically harmed. "However this is a completely frivolous lawsuit. We expect that the case will be dismissed and in future, to avoid these reoccurring meritless lawsuits directed at Chris Brown, we plan to seek damages from all parties and their lawyers."
