Pegasus Nightclub Shooting Suspect Turns Himself In

A suspect wanted in connection with a drive-by shooting that left three wounded outside of the Pegasus nightclub turned himself into police on Tuesday, October 9.

San Antonio police say that 44-year-old Jose Rincon Hernandez was kicked out of Pegasus shortly before returning and firing gunshots outside of the club on Main Street. Investigators believe that he was kicked out at around 12:30 a.m. and opened fire on the victims near a taco stand by the club. He has been charged with at least one count of aggravated assault.

Two men and one woman, all in their 20s, suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the shooting. They were all brought to Brooke Army Medical Center for treatment.

Investigators are still canvassing the area in search of security camera footage and potential additional witnesses.

Are Nightclub Owners Liable For Shootings?

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam helps violent crime victims recover the financial support they need for the damages they've suffered. Here are some of his thoughts on nightclub owner liability for shootings and other violence:

Security and safety of customers and employees are key responsibilities of any business owner. For nightclub and bar owners, it's crucial to make sure that adequate security precautions are in place in order to reduce the risk of violent crime as much as possible. But sometimes, a lack of adequate security and other forms of negligence open the way for a violent crime to occur, resulting in injuries and death to innocent victims.

For example, a nightclub owner could be considered negligent for failing to have security measures like guards and metal detectors in place that could prevent nightclub patrons from bringing weapons into the club. In order to have a strong case for a lawsuit, the victim's legal team will need to prove that the crime was foreseeable and that property owner negligence was a factor in failing to prevent the crime.

If you or someone you love has been wounded or killed in a shooting at a bar or nightclub, you can learn more about your family's legal options by speaking to an experienced crime victims lawyer.
