Local News

Gunfire rang out at a Las Vegas, Nevada bar early Sunday morning, June 27, 2021, leaving one man dead.

As reported by KTNV.com, “[t]he Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was called around 3:20 a.m. to [a Pub] located near Charleston and Decatur boulevards with reports of a shooting.”

According to the report, “[h]omicide detectives say two men were at the bar for hours without interacting until the shooter randomly got up, walked over, and shot the other man. The man who was shot died and the suspected shooter left the bar.”

The victim was identified as Timothy Hartley, according to Fox5Vegas.com.

According to the FOx5Vegas.com report, “[a]round 3:10 a.m., surveillance footage showed [the suspect] make a gesture to Hartley with his glass, like a “cheers.” Hartley was on the phone at the time and [the suspect] was at his seat, holding a pistol…At 3:18 a.m.,  [the suspect] walked toward Hartley, who was facing away from him, with pistol in hand. [the suspect] pointed the gun at Hartley’s back and fired one shot…[the suspect] then “calmly walked out of the bar” to his vehicle.”

FORMER CLIENT: I had lawyers calling me, and friends telling me who I should hire…I trusted in The Murray Law Firm and I’m glad I did.

Bar and restaurant patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises they are visiting. The level of security provided at the bar is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property? 
  • Does the bar have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the bar aware of any suspicious activity prior to the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the bar owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the family of Timothy Hartley may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the family of Timothy Hartley retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

FORMER CLIENT: I had lawyers calling me, and friends telling me who I should hire…I trusted in The Murray Law Firm and I’m glad I did.

Bar and nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises they are visiting. The level of security provided at the property is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property? 
  • Does the nightclub have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
  • Was the nightclub aware of any suspicious activity prior to the shooting?
  • What nightclub security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims and others at the time of the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the property owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the family of Kadeem Felder may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the family of Kadeem Felder retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.
