According to ABC 30, there was a shooting that resulted in the injury of one man outside of Aldo's nightclub.
A 26-year-old male was shot in central Fresno during the early morning of May 23rd. The victim and his party were leaving the club as a white vehicle approached them, an argument ensued, and the man was eventually shot several times.
This incident is just one example of recent violence in the area, as two men were killed at a bar in Clovis the night before.
The male victim was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive. The suspect(s) involved sped off unseen, and the motive is being looked into.
Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced violent crimes attorney, has represented numerous victims of shootings. Below, Bobby provides insight on the legal options of victims shot at a club:
"Club owners have a legal obligation to protect patrons on and around their property. To ensure the safety of patrons, club owners must implement security measures such as cameras, guards, and strong lighting. If an owner fails to provide adequate security measures, they may be deemed liable for crimes that occur on their property."
“When violent crimes occur on private property, they may be due to negligence on behalf of a third party, such as a property owner. Property owners may be deemed negligent if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates were increasing in the area, but an owner did not improve security measures. Victims of shootings should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to learn more about their legal rights. In negligent crimes, victims may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”
