ST. LOUIS – The mother of a woman who was shot in the parking lot of a liquor store and later died is suing the store's owners.

Kala Eberhart filed a complaint on Aug. 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Shreenas Inc., doing business as PX Liquor, and Snapsnip LLC alleging negligence.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on May 24, 2016, her daughter, Keyla Eberhart, was an invitee at defendants' PX Liquor in St. Louis store when she was approached by an unknown assailant, assaulted and shot in the parking lot. She sustained injuries leading to her death, the suit states.

The plaintiff holds Shreenas Inc. and Snapsnip LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to maintain adequate security in their store premises and did not timely call the police to report the assailant to prevent the shooting of Keyla Eberhart.

The plaintiff seeks damages of no less than $25,000, plus costs and all other and further relief. She is represented by James D. O'Leary of O'Leary, Shelton, Corrigan, Peterson, Dalton & Quillin LLC in St. Louis.
