According to ABC 13, a shooting occurred at Micheladas El Guero bar located at 10405 Airline Dr, Houston, TX 77037. 

Around 2 p.m. on Sunday, September 5, 2021, Manuel Reyes allegedly shot two victims following an argument at the Harris County bar. Police stated that the suspect and the two patrons were involved in an altercation inside the bar before the suspect revealed a pistol and shot one of the victims.

Legal Options For Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor, Marc Lenahan, has had years of experience representing victims of violent crimes and their families in civil lawsuits. Marc recently shared his insight on the rights of victims shot at a bar:

"Bar owners have a legal duty to make sure their property is safe for their patrons and staff. Certain safety measures should be maintained, such as security cameras, trained security guards, and experienced staff members. Bar owners can be held responsible in a civil lawsuit if proper security measures were not provided at the time of a crime."

"In some cases, crimes can result from negligence on behalf of the property owner. When a crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable, the bar owner may be seen as negligent. One such example of negligence could include if crime rates around the property increased, but the bar owner or management failed to enhance their safety measures. An experienced violent crimes attorney can help victims, and their families explore all their legal options. Victims and their families may even receive compensation for any damages resulting from the crime if the attorney proves the bar owner was negligent."
