Shooting at Party Venue Leaves Ten Wounded

According to WFAA, a shooting occurred at The Space Dallas located at 5214 Botham Jean Blvd, Dallas, TX 75215. 

Police were called to the shooting at around midnight on Saturday, March 19, 2022. They arrived to find eight victims injured during the shooting. Two more were discovered after they went to a nearby hospital. Most of the wounded victims were said to be in stable condition, but one, an 18-year old, is still in critical condition. 

The shooting was said to have occurred as people were outside the venue. One of the securities working for crowd control reported that the suspects originally attempted to get into the venue but were turned away due to their weapons. They allegedly got into their vehicles, and as they were driving away, they opened fire on the large crowd. 

When the shooting occurred, police issued a citywide assist call, which meant that any available officers were dispatched to the scene. Police collected more than 30 casings from the site. There have been no arrests announced at this time.

Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Party Venue?

For years, attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has worked to ensure that victims of violent crime receive justice. He recently discussed how victims and their families can sue if shot at a party venue.

"Patrons and employees of party venues and event centers have a right to feel comfortable and secure while on the premises. The amount of security supplied by the party venue owner is important to examine when determining whether a shooting could have been avoided with more security. Victims should inquire about security measures in place to reduce the risks of crime, including strong lighting, surveillance cameras, and trained security personnel. If security precautions were neglected, the owner of the venue could be held accountable for its negligence."

"Victims of shootings and other violent crimes can discuss their legal options for justice with an experienced violent crime attorney. If negligence is found to be a factor, they may be entitled to compensation. An attorney will seek to prove the crime was foreseeable or that the owner could have known about the increased risks but failed to improve security measures. Civil lawsuits against negligent property owners can lead to justice for the victims of shootings and other violent crimes."
