Police Searching for Suspect in Little Woodrow's Bar Shooting

Police in San Antonio are searching for a suspect in the Sunday morning shooting that left a man wounded at Little Woodrow's Babcock, a popular sports bar.

According to the police, a fight progressed into gunshots at the bar shortly after midnight on Sunday. They say that an overweight man pulled out a firearm during the fight and fired twice, shooting a man multiple times in the leg.

A woman also suffered minor injuries while attempting to flee the scene.

The victim was brought to a nearby hospital by friends in a private vehicle. The police say that the gunman fled the scene and has not been yet been apprehended.

Police detained and questioned several witnesses at the bar. One witness shared a video of the shooting with KSAT-12, which shows a group of people trying to break up a fight before shots are fired.

Police are attempting to track down the suspect and this investigation is ongoing.

Are Bar Owners Liable for Shootings on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil cases. We've asked him to share some thoughts on the legal options available to these families:

The safety of customers, employees, and all other visitors must be a top priority for all property owners. In fact, property owners are legally required to make sure their properties are free from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. When a shooting happens at a bar or nightclub, it's important to determine if the property owner met these legal requirements. In some cases, these shootings are preventable and only happen due to property owner negligence.

For example, a property owner could be considered negligent if there had been a prior history of violence at their bar but no efforts were made to improve security - such as hiring security guards or purchasing metal detectors. When property owner negligence was a factor in a bar or nightclub shooting, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed during a bar shooting, you can learn more about your family's legal options by speaking to one of our experienced crime victim attorneys.
