According to Fox2Now, a fight ended in two being shot outside Diana’s Royal Palace located at 4266 Natural Bridge Ave, St. Louis, MO 63115.
At around 12:45 a.m., a fight from inside the bar spilled outside into the parking lot. At some point, a gun was drawn, and two people were shot. One was transported to the hospital by ambulance while the other showed up later. In addition to the two victims, many of the cars were riddled with bullet holes.
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced shooting victim lawyer representing victims along with their families in lawsuits. Laurence recently shared his knowledge on filing lawsuits for bar shootings.
"Bars and nightclubs often have issues with violent crime, from fights to shootings and stabbings. This is why bar owners must keep their premises secure to ensure their patrons and staff are safe from preventable crimes. In fact, bar owners, like other commercial business owners, are legally required to maintain a level of security measures. These could include hired security guards, properly lit parking lots, and video monitoring cameras."
"While not all violent crimes that take place in bars are foreseeable, many may have been prevented if the nightclub owner had not neglected the property's safety. If a history of violence surrounds the bar, but the owner fails to make improvements to reduce that violence, the bar owner could be considered negligent in a court of law. Safety improvements may include hiring additional security guards and conducting weapon searches. Victims of violent crimes, such as shootings, at a bar should gain the counsel of an experienced shooting victim lawyer to guide them through the options for recourse which could include compensation."
