A man was killed early Monday morning after a disturbance in an Uptown Dallas Bar spilled outside and gunshots were fired.

Police say 32-year-old Tommie Richard Rodger was fatally shot outside of One Sette Bar in the 2600 block of McKinney Avenue, near the intersection with Boll Street, at around 1:30 a.m. on Monday.

Responding officers found Rodger lying on the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the chest. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police have identified the suspect as 24-year-old Franklin Moore, who was reportedly involved in "a disturbance with several patrons inside the club." Moore fled from the scene but later surrendered at the Euless Police Department.

Moore was brought back to Dallas, where police interviewed him and charged him with murder. This investigation remains ongoing.

Legal Rights of Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam is a crime victim lawyer who represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits for cases involving negligence. Anjali has offered to add some legal commentary regarding the legal rights of these victims and families:

The owners of bars, nightclubs, and other alcohol-serving venues have a legal duty to make sure their patrons and employees are as safe as possible. Having adequate security for preventing violent crime is part of this legal duty. While not all shootings and stabbings at bars are preventable, some only occur due to inadequate security or another form of negligence by the property owner.

For example, a bar owner might be considered negligent if the bar had previous issues with violence but no safety improvements were made, such as having security guards search guests for weapons before entering.
