According to the Daily News, a shooting followed an altercation at the North Hills Synn Gentlemen’s Club located at 8314 Sepulveda Blvd, North Hills, CA 91343.
On March 7, 2022, at approximately 2 a.m., a man was shot outside of the strip club. Police arrived to find a 20-year-old victim suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to the hospital, where he later died. Investigators say an argument that took place outside the club led to the fatal shooting. Police have identified a possible suspect, Savin Seng, and are still locating him to take into custody.
Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has worked as a gun violence lawyer for many years. Bobby and his team fight for the compensation that shooting victims and their families deserve. During a recent interview, he discussed when a gentlemen's club can be sued for shootings that occur on their property.
"It is the legal duty of owners of gentlemen's clubs to keep their establishment secure. When a business serves alcohol to its customers, it increases the risk of violence, such as shootings. The owners of the club are legally liable for the safety of their patrons and employees. Surveillance cameras, skilled security guards, and well-lit parking lots are all examples of such necessary security measures. A club owner could be held accountable for crimes committed on their property, including its parking lot if certain measures that aim to reduce violent hazards are not implemented."
"In a civil lawsuit, club owners who did not offer proper security may be found negligent. If the incident can be proved to be reasonably foreseeable, meaning the property owner did not provide adequate protection despite the fact that criminal activity was knowingly on the rise, they can be held liable for damages."
"Victims of club shootings can seek legal advice from an experienced gun violence attorney, who will examine a variety of circumstances to determine whether filing a lawsuit is the appropriate course of action for each victim or the family of those killed in club shootings."
