Police Are Investigating a Shooting That Killed 1 Person and Injured Another in Las Vegas
It was around 4 a.m. on Saturday when a fight broke out inside of The Stateside Lounge on 931 Las Vegas Blvd North. The altercation escalated and moved to the parking lot of the lounge which is connected to a Sinclair Gas Station, according to KTNV Las Vegas.
Then the two men fighting outside of the gas station exchanged gunfire. One of them was shot and killed. The suspect fled the scene, leaving the wounded man in the parking lot. No arrests have been made.
Prior History of Violent Crime in The Same Parking Lot
According to the Las Vegas Review Journal there have been 3 homicides in the same business complex parking lot just in this year. In March a man tried to steal a beer from the gas station when he was shot and killed by one of the employees. Again in March, a man was found stabbed to death in the parking lot between the gas station and the bar.

Legal Options For Parking Lot Shooting Victims and Their Families
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents victims of parking lot shootings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent shares his thoughts on the legal options open to these victims.
“All commercial property owners must fulfill their important legal duty of ensuring the safety of their patrons and employees. Property owners of places such as parking lots and bars must provide adequate security measures to anyone that visits their premises in order to prevent any injuries or deaths. However, property owners only have the responsibility of preventing reasonably foreseeable crimes. A crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable if a parking lot had a history of criminal violence and the security measures were not improved”, said Mr. Kent.
He continued by explaining, “If a restaurant owner fails to provide adequate security and a violent crime like a shooting does occur due to their negligence, then the owner may be held partially liable. However, the victim’s lawyer must prove that the crime was also reasonably foreseeable. If the incident is proven to be caused by negligent security and deemed reasonably foreseeable, then victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.”
