Radio station shooting victim files lawsuit

Eugene Crisler, a man shot at WORT-FM in 2018, has filed a personal injury lawsuit against the station, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The lawsuit against the station and its insurance company at the time of the shooting alleges the station was negligent in providing proper security and failed to comply with a state law governing safety at places of business. Crisler sustained a gunshot wound on Aug. 5, 2018, at WORT-FM, 118 S. Bedford St., as he assisted with a broadcast in a studio at the station. While a suspect was named, nobody has been arrested or charged in the shooting.
