Reports say the men had gotten into a fight with at least one of the three suspects before being shot. Police are looking for the two men and a woman who they have linked to the double murder.
Attorney contributor Brian Kent has years of experience working for a gun violence law firm. Brian and his team fight to get shooting victims and their families the settlement they deserve. In an interview, he recently covered when lawsuits can be filed against a gentlemen's club for shootings on their property.
"It is critical that bar and nightclub owners maintain the security of their property. This includes establishments such as gentlemen's clubs and hookah lounges. When a property offers alcohol to its patrons, they have a greater risk for violence such as shootings and stabbings. The club owners are legally responsible for ensuring the safety of their patrons and staff. Examples of security measures might include surveillance cameras, trained security guards, and adequately lit parking lots. Without these measures that help to reduce violent risks, a club owner could be held liable for crimes committed on their property, including the parking lot."
"When club owners do not foster adequate security, they can be deemed negligent in a lawsuit. If the crime is considered reasonably foreseeable, meaning a property owner did not implement ample security even though criminal activity had increased, they can be held accountable for damages."
"The legal options of victims of club shootings can be addressed by acquiring the services of a gun violence attorney. The attorney will analyze many factors to determine if a lawsuit is the best course of legal action for each victim or their family."
