LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted early Sunday morning, December 1, 2019 at a Cleveland, Ohio nightclub leaving one young woman dead. 

As reported by Patch.com, “[a]t 1 a.m. on Sunday, callers reported gunshots fired on E. 103rd Street.”

According to the report, “[w]hen officers arrived, they found [a] 19-year-old with gunshot wounds to her head and torso.”

The victim was taken to “University Hospitals, where she was later pronounced dead.”

WKYC.com is reporting, “a fight broke out inside [an] Entertainment Complex on Union Avenue around 1 a.m. and security ordered everyone to leave the establishment.”

Per the report, “[o]ne suspect was apparently shot in the leg while running away from the club and fired back toward the crowd, striking the teen victim.”

According to Patch.com, ” the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s office identified the 19-year-old as Catera Fowler.”

One suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting.

The investigation is ongoing.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

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 there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the management aware of any suspicious activity or suspicious persons on property prior to the shooting? 
  • Does the club have a protocol for checking guests for deadly weapons prior to entering into the establishment?

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 Catera Fowler 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 Catera Fowler retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Business 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? 
  • Was the property owner or manager aware of any suspicious activity prior to the shooting?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim 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 victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for his injuries.

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 victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect his interests.
