Could this senseless Greenville bar shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Norris Bates’ family?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a Greenville bar shooting claimed the life of Norris Shawndra Bates early Friday morning, November 16, 2018.

According to 7 News, gunfire erupted inside “Swagg Bar and Grill…on White Horse Road around 12:45 a.m.” Mr. Bates was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital, where he tragically succumbed to fatal injuries.

Police have since made an arrest in connection with the shooting, per WYFF 4 reports.

Our Legal Take

Bar patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of criminal activity on or near property?
  • How did a gun gain entry to the property?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, metal detectors, bag checks, surveillance cameras, and visible security personnel were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Bates at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Norris Bates’ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Could this tragic Globe bar shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victims’ families?

Local News

Security measures are in question following a deadly shooting inside Jammerz Sunday night, November 11, 2018, which claimed the lives of three people and left two others injured.

According to AZ Central News, the gunman “was playing pool at the bar before opening fire just before 10:30 p.m.” Tragically, Ashley Sanchez, Daniel Albo and Cristi Licano succumbed to fatal injuries. Charlene Peak and Scott Mills suffered injuries. Their current conditions have not been released.

An ABC 15 investigation, based on “[p]aperwork filed by state regulators” alleges that, “only one employee was working at Jammerz at the time of the shooting, and was outside smoking marijuana when the suspect opened fire.” The bar has reportedly since “had it’s liquor license suspended.”

Our Legal Take

Bar patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of criminal activity on or near property?
  • How many trained employees were working inside the establishment at the time of the shooting?
  • How did a gun gain entry to the property?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, surveillance cameras, and security personnel were in place to deter crime and protect patrons at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the families of Ashley Sanchez, Cristi Licano and Daniel Albo may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wrongful deaths. Additionally, Charlene Peak and Scott Mills may pursue legal claims for their injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.

Could the tragic loss of this young San Antonio man have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Terrence Scott’s family?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a San Antonio sports bar shooting claimed the life of 26-year-old Terrence Lamont Scott and left a woman injured early Saturday morning, November 17, 2018.

According to KENS 5, gunfire erupted inside “Chasers Sports Bar & Lounge, near Blanco and West Avenue around 1 a.m.” Mr. Scott was discovered with fatal injuries at the scene. A female victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. Her identity and current condition have not been released.

A witness reportedly told KSAT 12, he “knew something was going to happen because there was no like, no security whatsoever. They were just letting people going in. I mean the place was packed. Like something was bound to happen.” The chaotic account raises grave questions over security measures at the bar.

Our Legal Take

Bar and nightclub patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of criminal activity on or near property?
  • How did a gun gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as weapons screenings, metal detectors, bag checks, surveillance cameras, and visible security personnel were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Scott at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the sports bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Terrence Scott’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. Additionally, the surviving victim of this shooting may pursue legal claims for her injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.

29-year-old Xavier Avila was shot and killed following an argument “outside of [a] Sports Bar in the 1300 block of Bandera Road” Monday morning,  November 26, 2018, according to MySanAntonio News.

Family members told KSAT 12, Mr. Avila “was known for his sense of humor, burly stature and a booming personality.” Sadly, he leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter, “who they say was the love of his life.” While media reports indicate two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting, questions remain concerning security measures at the sports bar.

Our Legal Take

Bar and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Were any efforts made by bar security or staff to safely and separately remove all those involved in the initial altercation from the premises?
  • What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, clear sight lines, and security patrols were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Avila at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the bar or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Xavier Avilas’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the sports bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Adrian Peralta’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
