KSAT 12 claims that an argument broke out in the parking lot near the back of the building of Caribe nightclub located at 10319 Perrin Beitel Rd in San Antonio, Texas. Things escalated and shots were fired. Witnesses say they saw the victim running back towards the nightclub when he was picked up by a bystander and taken to Northeast Baptist Hospital.
No arrests have been made, but police say a maroon truck was spotted leaving the club just after the incident. If you have any information on the shooting please contact the San Antonio Police Department.
Marc Lenahan is an attorney contributor who helps nightclub shooting victims seek justice through civil lawsuits.
“A crucial responsibility bar owners have is to make sure that their patrons and employees are as safe as possible while on their property. To the best of their abilities, bar owners must take precautions and provide adequate security to their customers. Essentially, a bar owner must take into account any prior criminal violence that has occurred in their area and adjust their security measures in order to prevent any future hazards from occurring”, Mr. Lenahan stated.
“If a bar owner fails to provide adequate security and a bar shooting does occur due to their negligent security, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner. However, bar shooting cases are complex and the shooting must be deemed reasonably foreseeable for the owner to be held liable”, explained Mr. Lenahan.
