Police records show that the bar - known as Buffy's Lounge when Tiggett was killed but now called Mr. Chicken and Bernice's Lounge - has long been a problem spot in Nicetown, a neighborhood already plagued with violence.
Since 2009, cops have been called 280 times to the bar's block, between Clarissa Street and Wayne Avenue, to disperse disorderly crowds, three times for homicides and eight times for aggravated assaults, according to police statistics.
To compare, in the same period, police have been called 44 times for disorderly crowds and four times for aggravated assault to the nearby block where Baby Grand Lounge is located, on Germantown Avenue near Roberts Street. There have been no homicides in that time on that block, according to police stats.
Calls to 9-1-1 - both founded and unfounded - from each bar's block also show consistent problems at the Dennie Street bar. Since 2009, police have been called to that bar's block 1,054 times. Cops have been called to the other bar's block 628 times in the same timeframe.
Assistant District Attorney Beth Grossman, chief of the District Attorney's Office's Public Nuisance Task Force, said her office has received complaints about the bar at least once a year. Grossman said her office is deciding whether it will take steps to have the bar shut down for a year.
The bar "seems to be quite a problem," Grossman said.
Morgan's lawyer, Jonathan Levin, said that a civil suit against the bar is a possibility, but that he and Morgan had not reached that point.
Several attempts by the Daily News to contact the owners of the bar listed on its liquor license and property records have been unsuccessful.
"It's like he don't care - the bar owner," Morgan said.
Norman Henley, who has lived on Dennie Street near the bar for 30 years, said that it has quieted down recently, but that "a lot of shooting" took place there in the past.
Morgan said the bar, which changed names at least four times in recent years, is known around the neighborhood as a notorious spot.
At the time of Tiggett's death, police said ballistic evidence showed that five shooters were involved in the shootout that killed her.
Earlier this month, at a hearing for four of the accused shooters, a witness who worked as a bouncer at the bar testified that the gunfire stemmed from an argument that began inside.
One of the men arrested in the shooting was 19 years old at the time.
"He don't belong in a bar," Morgan said.
She and a police source both said that the bar has been shut down before because of problems, but that each time, it has reopened shortly thereafter.
The mother, still grieving over the death of her only child, said she wished that the bar had been closed or that her daughter had decided against going that night.
"She said she was going to stop going around there because of the shootings," Morgan said. "I just wish she didn't go."
