Person of Interest Arrested Following Extra Point Sports Bar Shooting

On Sunday, a spokesman for the Thornton Police Department announced that a person of interest had been arrested in connection with a shooting that left one woman dead and four other people injured at the Extra Point Sports Bar this weekend.

At around 1:30 a.m. on Saturday, officers responded to reports of "a large disturbance with weapons" at the bar, located at 4050 E. 100th Avenue in Thornton. Once the police arrived, they discovered two men and two women suffering from gunshot wounds. They were also told that another man had walked to a hospital after being stabbed at the bar.

One of the women who was shot was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

No names of victims or the suspect have been released and police have not discussed what charges the person of interest could face.

Legal Options For Victims of Bar Shootings and Stabbings

Here is some legal commentary on the legal options available to bar violence victims from attorney Dan Lipman:

When violence breaks out in a public place, it's important to ask if anything more could have been done to prevent the incident. In cases involving bars and nightclubs, the owners of these establishments have a legal obligation to do all that they can to keep the premises safe. In some cases, property owners can be held liable for damages by the victims of shootings and stabbings - such as cases involving negligent security.

Additionally, Colorado has dram shop laws which sometimes allow bar owners to be held liable for serving alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person or a minor under age 21 who goes on to injure or kill someone else. This may apply to cases of bar violence, in addition to drunk driving cases.

Liability for bar shootings and stabbings is a complex legal concept. Victims who are curious about their legal options should consult with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
