Police Investigating Shooting at Safari Club

A man was hospitalized early Sunday morning after suffering a gunshot wound during a large altercation at the Safari Club in Beaumont.

Police responded to reports of a shooting at the club on Orleans Street at around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, February 17. Upon arrival, they found a 24-year-old Port Arthur man suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Approximately 300 people were at the nightclub for a party when a large fight began inside. This fight eventually overflowed out into the parking lot, where shots were fired.

The club was evacuated after officers arrived and the victim was found outside on the 300 block of Crockett Street. He was rushed to St. Elizabeth's Hospital and listed in stable but critical condition.

The police believe there may have been as many as four shooters. However, 12News has reported that witnesses have not cooperated with police. Anyone with information regarding this case has been asked to contact the Beaumont Police or Southeast Texas Crime Stoppers.

Legal Options for Nightclub Shooting Victims and Their Families

Anjali Nigam is an attorney contributor who represents victims of preventable violent crimes in civil lawsuits. Here is some insight from Anjali on the legal options available to bar and nightclub shooting victims and their families:

The owners of bars and nightclubs have a legal obligation to keep their customers, employees, and other visitors to their properties safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. While not all bar and nightclub shootings are foreseeable, some are preventable and only happen due to inadequate security or another form of negligence by the property owner. The victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit in cases which involve negligence.

For example, a nightclub shooting might be considered foreseeable if there had been a history of violent incidents at the nightclub. If the nightclub owner failed to make efforts to improve security (such as hiring guards and installing metal detectors), he or she could potentially be held liable if the victims and their families decide to take legal action.
