One Killed, Two Wounded at a Shooting at Mascara's Gentlemen's Club

According to First Coast News, a shooting left two injured and killed another at Mascara's Nightclub located at 3225 Southside Blvd, Jacksonville, FL 32216. 

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to a call around 2:30 a.m. that a shooting took place just as the gentlemen's club was closing for the evening. They arrived to find one victim dead and two others with minor injuries following gunshots. The two victims were transported to the hospital for treatment of their gunshot wounds. 

The investigation is ongoing, and the sheriff's office has no motive or suspect at this time. Although it appears to be an isolated incident, another shooting took place just hours earlier, less than a block away at Passion's Gentlemen's Club, resulting in one being killed.

Legal Rights For Victims of Club Shootings

Attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, has experience representing victims shot outside of a club in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Michael provided advice for victims' families to better understand their legal rights in the event that a family member is shot outside of a nightclub:

"Nightclub and bar owners have the legal obligation to protect their patrons by making sure their property has adequate security measures in place. The security provided should be sufficient enough to ensure the safety of their customers and staff. Well-lit parking lots, in addition to security cameras throughout the area, are clear examples of these types of security measures. A nightclub owner could be considered liable if guests are not adequately protected and become injured on the premises."

"The nightclub owner can even be held liable if a crime is deemed foreseeable. For example, if crimes on or around the area have been increasing, but management neglected to improve security measures, then a crime can be considered foreseeable. In these cases, victims' families are encouraged to seek the services of an experienced violent crimes attorney because they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit which could include receiving compensation for damages."
