Mass Shooting at Concert Leaves 1 Dead, 16 Wounded

NBC DFW has reported that a mass shooting took place during an event held in a field near the 5000 block of Cleveland Rd, Dallas, TX 75241. 

Police responded to the shooting at approximately 12:13 a.m. following an outdoor concert on Saturday, April 2, 2022. They arrived to find one young man with a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police reported that 16 more victims were injured due to the shooting. 

As many as seven off-duty officers were working security for the event, with an estimated 2000 in attendance. However, they had left just before the incident took place. According to a preliminary inquiry, one person discharged a gun into the air, and another fired a gun toward the crowd. They are still investigating and hoping for clues leading to a suspect. 

This is the second event shooting in less than three weeks. Read about the tragic shooting at an event held at The Space Dallas that left one dead and ten injured:

Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Concert?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is an experienced crime victim attorney in Texas. Marc often represents shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Recently he sat down with us and shared some information regarding the legal options available to shooting victims and their families, including when they can sue for being shot at a concert

"Event venue owners and coordinators have a great responsibility to ensure sufficient security for large events such as concerts. These events have a heightened risk of violence, so security should be taken seriously. Maintaining preventative actions that limit risk as much as feasible is crucial. This can include hired security personnel, ample lighting, and security cameras. However, insufficient security and other negligence can result in patrons getting hurt by violent crime, such as shootings."

"When people are hurt or killed at a concert or special event, law enforcement will conduct an investigation. Failure to provide sufficient safety measures to reduce the risk of violence could cause the venue owner to be held accountable. This is especially true if the owner was aware of an increase in violence in the area yet failed to increase security measures. Victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit and may be entitled to financial compensation in many cases of security neglect. Victims should obtain legal advice from an experienced crime victim attorney to understand their legal rights."
