Diamond Club Shooting Victim Drives Himself to Hospital

A man who was wounded in a shooting at an Orange County strip club on August 9 drove himself to a nearby hospital, according to Orlando police. Deputies were called to the Diamond Club on Semoran Boulevard at around 2:10 a.m. on reports of a shooting. After arriving at the scene, they discovered "indications of a shooting", but no victims or shooters were found.

But according to a news release, a 30-year-old man reportedly drove himself to Florida Hospital East. He was eventually taken into surgery there. This unidentified victim suffered gunshot wounds and was listed in critical condition, but expected to survive.

According to a club employee, there was an argument inside of the club before shots were fired.

No further information regarding the victim or any suspects has been released.

History of Violence at Club Diamond in Orlando

This shooting is not the first incident that resulted in police responding to Club Diamond.

In 2010, a man was shot after being ambushed by four men in an armed robbery.

In 2013, police were called when a young girl was found sleeping in her father's car in the parking lot while he was drinking inside of the club.

In 2016, one man was killed and two others were wounded in a shooting outside of the club.

Legal Recourse For Club Shooting Victims

Michael Haggard represents violent crime victims in civil lawsuits. We've asked him to share some insight into property owner liability for violent incidents like bar shootings and stabbings:

With an atmosphere based on excessive drinking, bars and nightclubs are often the scenes of violent incidents like bar fights, shootings, and stabbings. In the aftermath of a violent incident, the victims and their families often wonder how the incident occurred and if anything more could have been done to prevent it.

In some cases, shootings and stabbings at bars and nightclubs occur in part because of negligent or inadequate security. When this happens, the victims of the violent incident may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner. All property owners have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe from preventable dangers, which includes foreseeable violent crime. In venues with a history of violence, this is doubly important. Property owners who fail to meet this obligation may be held liable if the victims choose to file a lawsuit.

If you or someone you love has been wounded in or killed in a bar or nightclub shooting or stabbing, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
