A man was wounded in a shooting inside of De Real Ting Cafe on West Adams Street in the early hours of Saturday, February 9. The victim, 28-year-old Paul Steney, was hospitalized at Florida Health Jacksonville and listed in stable condition.

According to detectives, Steney was shot in the back inside of the bar and nightclub at around 3:30 a.m. on Saturday. Police say he then ran outside of the venue and was driven to University of Florida Health Jacksonville by friends.

Are Nightclub Owners Liable for Shootings?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard helps crime victims recover the financial compensation they deserve in civil cases. Here is some input from Michael on nightclub owner liability for shootings on their properties:

The owners of nightclubs and all other types of properties must place the safety of their premises above all else. Prioritizing safety protects customers, employees, guests, and neighbors. This includes instituting safety measures for reducing the risk of foreseeable violent crime. When a shooting happens at a nightclub, it's important to determine if the property owner did all that they could to keep the venue safe.

In some cases, nightclub shootings only occur due to property owner negligence. For example, if the nightclub where the shooting occurred was in an area with high violent crime rates, the owner might be considered negligent if they failed to make efforts to improve security - such as hiring guards and conducting weapons searches. In cases of negligence, the shooting victims and their families may have a case for a lawsuit.
