Could this senseless loss have been prevented?
An altercation that allegedly started inside a nightclub reportedly escalated into gunfire in a parking lot outside the T&A Cabaret Sunday morning, February 25, 2018, claiming the life of 44-year-old David Sandoval and leaving two others injured.
According to AZ Central News, the shooting occurred “in the parking lot of…T&A Cabaret on Central Avenue near Broadway Road,” around 2:00 a.m. The Arizona Daily Sun reports, “a fight that broke out inside the business…carried over into the parking lot and three people were shot.” Tragically, Mr. Sandoval succumbed to fatal injuries. A male and female victim also suffered gunshot wounds. Their current conditions have not been released.

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.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on property?
- What efforts were made by nightclub staff and security to safely and separately remove those involved in the initial altercation from the premises, prior to an escalation to gunfire? Were police called at the start of the initial dispute?
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 property owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of David Sandoval may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, the other two victims of this shooting may pursue legal claims for their injuries.
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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
