Deadly Bar Shooting Leaves Two Dead and One Injured

KTLA has reported a shooting occurring at a bar on Tweedy Boulevard just down from the Leland R. Weaver Library located at 4035 Tweedy Blvd, South Gate, CA 90280. 

At approximately 3:18 a.m. on Saturday, January 22, 2022, police were called to the parking lot of the library. They arrived to find a man dead from apparent gunshot wounds. Officers were then directed to a nearby bar, where they found two other victims. One victim was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment and is said to be in critical condition. The other victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the shooting.

An investigation has led police to believe the shooting occurred in the rear parking lot of the bar following an argument.

Who is Liable For a Shooting in a Bar Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is a shooting victim lawyer who files civil lawsuits against negligent property owners for victims of bar shootings. Bobby recently explained when a bar owner can be held liable for a shooting in a bar parking lot. 

"Unfortunately, liquor can often lead to rowdy and even violent behavior. Knowing this, bar owners must take the necessary safety precautions to ensure the safety of their patrons and employees. There are many safety measures that a bar owner can take to reduce the chances of preventable crime, such as shootings and stabbings on their property. These often include security cameras, hired security guards, and sufficient lighting around the property. If a bar owner fails to protect their patrons and staff by maintaining a security plan, they can be considered negligent."

"Foreseeability is a significant factor in determining whether a shooting happened due to security negligence. Some bar shootings occur as a result of the bar owner's negligence. For instance, if police had been called to the bar several times for prior issues with violence, but the owner failed to increase its security, the shooting might be considered foreseeable. In cases of foreseeable crime and security neglect, the bar owner could be held liable for a shooting in a bar parking lot. When victims are injured or killed in bar shootings, the violent attacks can leave victims or their families with a lifetime of pain and financial burdens. An experienced shooting victim lawyer can help file a civil lawsuit to obtain financial compensation for the victim or their family."
