Tequila KC Bar in Kansas City, Kansas

4 dead and 5 others injured in shooting at Tequila KC Bar in Kansas City, Kansas.

2 Suspects Identified In Shooting At Tequila KC Bar

CNN claims that on October 6th police received a call around 1:30 a.m. about reports of a shooting at Tequila KC bar located on 5314, 1013 Central Ave, Kansas City, KS 66102.

Supposedly, there was an argument earlier in the night because the bartender would not serve a man who had started problems at the bar prior to that night. The man then threw a glass at the bartender and was kicked out of the bar.

Two hours later, two suspects arrived at the bar and opened fire with handguns.

When police arrived, there were 4 deceased victims and 5 others injured from gunshot wounds. The 5 injured victims were all hospitalized and are in stable condition.

One suspect, Javier Alatorre, was arrested in Kansas City, Missouri. The second suspect, Villanueva-Morales, is still at large. Chief York considered Morales to be “armed and dangerous”. The investigation is still ongoing and if you know any information about the incident or the suspects whereabouts, please contact Kansas City Police Department at (816) 234-5000.

Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings

Brian Kent is an attorney contributor at www.crimevictim.Attorney who represents victims of bar shootings. Mr. Kent shares his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“There are certain circumstances in which victims injured or killed in shootings on commercial properties may have grounds to file a lawsuit against the property owner. First, the shooting must have only occurred due to inadequate security. Commercial property owners are legally required to provide adequate security on their premises in order to protect their patrons and employees from preventable crime. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured during a shooting due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner”, states Mr, Kent.

“Next, the crime that took place must be considered reasonably foreseeable for there to be a valid lawsuit. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of violent crime, but with no security improvements in place. For instance, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a bar due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be considered responsible for the crime”, explains Mr. Kent.

If you or someone you loved has fallen victim to a bar shooting, you can learn about your legal options by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
