Two Injured After Shooting Outside of Clutch Bar and Restaurant

According to WFAA, a shooting occurred in the parking lot of Clutch Bar and Restaurant located at 2520 Cedar Springs Road Dallas, Texas 75201.

Officers responded to reports of a shooting at 2:12 am on the morning of June 25th. According to the sergeant on the scene, the shooting followed an argument that took place inside the bar before erupting out onto the parking lot of the Clutch Bar and Restaurant. The fight involved several people, but only two were shot and taken to the local hospital for medical treatment.

One victim is said to be in critical condition, while the second is said to have sustained minor injuries. Although no arrests have been made, witnesses and surveillance cameras captured evidence of a male driver in an SUV fleeing the scene. 

The motive has not been established, but an investigation is still underway by the local police department.

Legal Rights for Shooting Victims at Bars

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has represented numerous victims of violent crimes taking place on commercial property. See below as he shares the legal options for victims of shootings at a bar.

"It is the legal obligation of private property owners to keep the safety of their guests both on and around their property. There are many different measures that the bar owners can implement to provide security, such as hiring security guards and installing cameras inside and out of the establishment. Additionally, if the area's crime rate has increased, safety measures should also be increased. If they fail to provide this safety and someone gets injured, they could be held accountable in a civil lawsuit."

"Shooting victims at bars should inquire about the security measures that were in place during the incident. In some cases, the property owner can be held as negligent in the eyes of the court. Victims of shootings at bars should seek the legal advice of an experienced violent crime attorney to understand their legal rights and options."
