Shooting at After-Hours Club Leaves Two Wounded and One Dead

KHOU 11 has reported that three were shot in the parking lot of El Tucanazo Night Club located at 7136 Clarewood Dr, Houston, TX 77036. 

Just before 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 8, 2022, a patron, security guard, and club employee were shot in the parking lot of the after-hours club in southwest Houston. The shooting occurred in the parking lot about ten minutes after several people were kicked out of the club for causing a disturbance inside. All three victims were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The patron later died from his injuries. 

The suspected shooter fled the scene before police arrived. Two weapons were recovered at the scene. Police say this is not the only time they have had issues with after-hours clubs. Club owners caught serving alcohol can face criminal charges.

Filing a Lawsuit For Victims Shot at an After-Hours Club

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents victims of gun violence and their families in lawsuits. As an experienced gun violence victim attorney, Marc explained the legal options available for victims shot and injured or killed at a after-hours club. 

"After-hours club owners, just like bar owners, must work to ensure the safety of their patrons and staff while on their property. It is critical that they take this legal commitment seriously to minimize incidents of preventable violence, such as gun and knife violence. Whenever there is a chance that patrons can become disorderly, after-hours club owners can combat this risk by having bouncers, security cameras, and ample lighting. Alcohol can increase the chance of violence so the staff members should be able to recognize when an intoxicated patron is posing a threat to those around them. If the club neglects its safety obligations, it can be held liable and risk lawsuits."

"By having sufficient security measures, bar owners can often prevent violence. A club owner should be on the lookout for potential for fights, especially when the club has a history of violence, and would be responsible for strengthening their security to reduce the increased risk. Victims injured in shootings at after-hours clubs can discuss their legal actions for compensation with an experienced gun violence victim attorney."
