Could this senseless loss of life have been prevented?
Gunfire erupted outside a Nashville hookah lounge Friday, May 11, 2018, claiming the life of 24-year-old Cesar Reza.
According to Tennesseean reports, “officers responded to the shooting at the parking lot of the Arabian Palace at 1135 Bell Road,” shortly before 1:30 a.m. Mr. Reza apparently “pulled into the parking lot behind a man who was trying to back out.” The other driver allegedly opened fire during a subsequent argument, fatally striking Mr. Reza.
An Antioch Patch investigation reveals this is the seventh hookah lounge shooting in Davidson County in the past year, including another outside the same establishment in January 2018.

Our Legal Take
Nightclub and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- What additional security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, off-duty police, and security patrols, were implemented by the lounge and parking lot owners following media reports of prior crime at area hookah lounges?
Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the business or parking lot owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Cesar Reza may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
