A man was reportedly shot and injured during a robbery outside Stone nightclub Thursday morning, November 10, 2016.
According to CBS Denver, “Denver police say someone robbed two men at gunpoint in the club’s parking lot just before 2 a.m. Thursday.” The gunman apparently opened fire during the course of the “robbery-turned-shooting,” striking and injuring one of the victims. The victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. His current condition has not been released.
Local residents reportedly told media, “dangerous activity near the club is common.” CBS Denver reports, “in March, a man was found dead outside the nightclub, prompting a homicide investigation.”
Our Legal Take
Nightclub and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment 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 parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, security patrols and surveillance cameras, were in place to deter crime at the time of the shooting?
- Were any additional security precautions implemented by the property owner or management to protect patrons, following prior media reports of violence?
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 parking lot owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue a legal claim for his 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 victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
