According to KHOU, a shooting occurred outside of Spivey's Famous Bistro located at 3000 Blodgett St, Houston, TX 77004.

Houston police officers responded to a call of a shooting at around 1 a.m. on Thursday, February 17, 2022.

The other men were taken in private vehicles for the treatment of their wounds, which included one with a gunshot wound to the pelvis and one shot in the leg.

Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot Outside a Nightclub

Marc Lenahan, an attorney contributor for Legal Herald, works with victims of violent crimes in civil litigation. Below, Marc explained the legal rights of victims and their families who were shot in a nightclub. He also discussed when victims could file a lawsuit for compensation after a bar shooting

"By law, nightclub owners must protect patrons and staff on and around their premises from reasonable criminal activity. The owner must provide adequate security to safeguard them from potential threats to maintain their safety. Security cameras, skilled security guards, and sufficient lighting are all examples of good security measures. If a victim is shot in a nightclub, the victim's family should ask whether the nightclub's owner provided adequate security. If the nightclub owner failed to provide safety measures, the victim and their family may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligence nightclub owner."

"However, the victim's attorney will need to show that the offense was reasonably foreseeable in order to file a civil complaint. For instance, violence may be considered predictable if acts of violence in the nightclub were occurring more frequently, but the owner neglected to increase security measures. The owner may be held liable for the victims' damage in such cases. In cases of negligence, the victim should get legal advice from an experienced violent crimes attorney to fully explore their legal options."
