When Ellie Richardson left work at a Cincinnati sports bar early Thanksgiving morning, she wasn't expecting the violence she faced as she crossed the street.
While walking across the street near her work she was nearly hit by a van, according to the Cincinnati Police Department.
The 27-year-old bartender then got into a verbal argument with the driver before she was shot in the head.
Nick Lachey and his brother Drew opened the bar together in 2014 in their hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio. This was a lifelong dream of theirs and they were ready to get it off the ground.
“The determined brothers are ready to roll up this sleeves and learn the ins and outs of running a place where everybody knows your name,” a press release stated.
After the horrible incident with their employee, Nick and Drew are stepping up to help the member of their restaurant family.
