Two Wounded in Nightclub Shooting

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, a shooting took place near Baja's Beach Club located at 2020 W Pensacola St #120A, Tallahassee, FL 32304. 

At approximately 3:22 a.m. on Saturday, January 29, 2022, two men were shot outside the club. Earlier that night, rapper Kodak Black performed, packing the club. The victims sustained non-life-threatening injuries. 

Trail of Violence

The rapper's performances have a history of violence. Back in April 2021, his bodyguard was shot and seriously injured outside of a McDonald's after performing at the same club during a 3-day festival, Cultur3Fest.

Black himself has a history of violence that includes 2016 charges of possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, possession of marijuana, and fleeing from officers. He was also charged with armed robbery and false imprisonment the same year. He was also arrested for gun charges in Miami following a performance. The judge for this case even deemed him a "danger to the community."

Filing Lawsuits For Being Shot at a Nightclub

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is a Florida violent crime attorney. During an interview, Michael shared some legal information including when nightclub shooting victims can file a lawsuit.

“Nightclubs and establishments of that nature are responsible for protecting many individuals in a high-risk environment. Their safety should be a top priority to the nightclub owners, and the security measures taken must reflect that. Trained security personnel, surveillance cameras in all areas, ample lighting, and responsibly trained employees can help to secure the surroundings and reduce the risk of violence. When a nightclub owner does not uphold the protection of its customers, they can be liable for the crimes that happen on their property.”

“Additionally, the nightclub owner or any other entity responsible for the safety of the patrons can be deemed negligent if they fail to offer prevention for preventable crimes, such as shootings. When an incident occurs, it is often due to the negligence of a third party such as the owner, staff, or even concert promoter. If the third-party knew of a history of violence but failed to increase security, they can be held accountable for the foreseeable crime. Failure to take precautions and increase security measures can cause them to be found negligent in a court of law. If negligence is a factor, victims and their families may have grounds to move forward with a civil lawsuit. Victims can best explore their legal options with the assistance of an experienced violent crimes attorney.”
