Former Employee Shoots at Bar Staff Outside of Bar

According to Shore News Network, a shooting occurred outside the Good Vibes Kava and Hookah Bar located at 1185 Old Dixie Hwy a3, Vero Beach, FL 32960. 

On Friday, November 5, 2021, at about 2 a.m., two employees were getting ready to leave after the bar closed. Allegedly, Jacolby Dunbar approached them in the parking lot, and they informed him the bar was closed. At this point, Dunbar pulled out a gun and began firing at them.

Dunbar was gone before police arrived, but they were able to identify him based on his previous employment at the bar. He had a history of incidents that led to him being issued a trespassing warning and told not to return by the establishment's owners. Additionally, Dunbar was on probation for many violent offenses and is a convicted felon. 

Later the same day, Dunbar was apprehended and charged with two counts of attempted murder and trespassing on the property.

Can I Sue for Being Shot at Outside of a Bar? 

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard often represents clients involved in violent crimes during civil lawsuits. Recently he shared some options available to victims of violent crimes, such as shootings, and the possibility of receiving compensation following a shooting.

"Bars and hookah lounge owners have a legal responsibility to provide adequate security for their customers and staff. According to premises liability laws, they are to provide security measures that reduce the risk of preventable crimes, like shootings. Adequate security varies but may include proper lighting in the parking lot, hired security guards, and a video monitoring system. In the event that a bar owner fails to provide such security on their property, victims can file a civil lawsuit with the help of an experienced legal representative, like a gun crimes injury lawyer."

"The victim's lawyer will be responsible for proving negligence on behalf of the bar owner. Additionally, it must be established that a reasonably foreseeable crime took place. This could entail the bar owner neglecting to improve security despite crime rates increasing in the area. If the court does find neglect, compensation may be awarded to the victim. If you have been a victim of violent crime, like a shooting, contact an experienced violent crimes lawyer to explore your legal options fully."
