3 Arrested In Shooting Death of Tyrone Hill
On Monday, Tulsa County prosecutors filed murder charges against three men for the shooting death of 49-year-old Tyrone Hill outside of Torchy’s Briar Patch on June 3. According to police, the incident began when a man opened the door and looked inside of the Briar Patch bar, where the two victims were inside. The two victims left the bar and confronted the man outside. A fight started and approximately ten people joined in against the victims – that is when the shots were fired. An unidentified 34-year-old man was shot in the head and survived, while Hill was found dead in a front yard of a nearby house.
Legal Recourse for Victims of Violent Crime
When an innocent person gets injured or killed during a shooting, stabbing, or other violent crime, it’s crucial to find and prosecute the perpetrator. However, victims should also be aware that they have rights in the civil court system as well. Civil lawsuits help hold accountable third parties who may have failed to prevent their crime, such as the owner of the property where the crime occurred. Property owners have a legal duty to do all that they can to protect their premises and their customers or guests from violence. In cases where a negligent disregard for security results in violent crime, injuries, and death, the property owner could be held liable if the victim chooses to file a premises liability lawsuit.
