Did negligent security contribute to this shooting? Read Our Legal Take to find out if the victims may have a claim for compensation.
Five people were reportedly injured in a shooting at Reba’s Bar and Grill Sunday, June 26, 2016. TWC News reports, police have arrested the suspect who allegedly “fired a gun from the parking lot into Reba’s Bar and Grill on Camp Greene Street early Sunday morning. Three people who were inside were shot and taken to the hospital by ambulance. Two other victims arrived at the hospital on their own later.”
Police have apparently not yet identified a motive in the attack.
Our Legal Take
Bar, restaurant, and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure on the property that they are visiting. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided in the parking lot and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
- What security measures, such as bright lighting, security patrols, weapons screenings, and surveillance cameras, were in place to protect patrons at the time of the shooting?
- Was the bar or parking lot owner aware of any prior incidents of violence on or near the property? If so, were additional security precautions implemented by the property owner or management to deter crime?
Generally, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar or parking lot owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue a legal claim 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.
