Shooting at Lazy Gators Bar Leaves One Dead

According to KY3, a shooting occurred at Lazy Gators located at Sweet William Road, Lake Ozark, MO 65049. 

On the evening of May 29, 2021, 29-year-old Chad Tariq Brewer shot a man in the abdomen following a fight involving several people. The suspect was arrested that night but only on drug possession charges. Bar surveillance and video footage from bar patrons allowed the Camden County Sheriff, Tony Helms, to piece together enough evidence to charge Brewer with the fatal shooting. 

Brewer faces charges of first-degree murder in addition to delivery of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia. He was on parole for former charges of first-degree robbery for an incident in Cole County.

Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Reed Martens has extensive experience working with victims of violent crimes and their families in civil lawsuits. In an interview, Reed shares essential concepts with respect to the legal rights of victims shot outside of a bar:

"Bar owners and managers must put the safety of their patrons first. They are legally obligated to provide security measures such as guards, a well-lit environment, and surveillance cameras to ensure the well-being of their customers. When these measures are lacking or missing altogether, bar owners can be charged as liable in a civil lawsuit."

"The liability of a property owner can depend on the victim's attorney's ability to prove negligence. As crime rates increase within a given area, bar owners should also enhance their abilities to protect consumers, and if they fail to do so, they can be seen as negligent. When these types of cases take place, a crime on their property could be deemed as foreseeable. This opens up the opportunity for victims to have grounds for a civil lawsuit against an owner due to negligence. Victims or their families should hire an experienced violent crimes attorney as they have potential to receive compensation for damages."
