BELLEVILLE — A father is suing Pink Slip Exotic Bar for allegedly allowing a patron to bring a firearm inside, claiming his son was shot and killed. 

Marcus Stewart, as special representative for Marques Stewart filed a complaint on April 3 in the St. Clair County Circuit Court against Phillips-Garrett Inc., doing business as Pink Slip Exotic Bar, alleging an employee negligently granted permission to the shooter to bring his fire arm inside the bar.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on April 8, 2015, Marques Stewart was a patron at Pink Slip Exotic Bar when he was shot and killed.

The plaintiff alleges Pink Slip failed to provide adequate security inside its premises and failed to protect the decedent from the known danger of the shooter's intention to cause harm.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of $50,000, plus costs expended for this action and such other relief as this court deems just and fair. 

He is represented by Brent A. Sumner of The Summer Law Group LLC in Clayton, Mo.
