Could this senseless loss of life been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?
A Pueblo nightclub shooting reportedly claimed the life of one man early Sunday morning, July 29, 22018.
According to The Denver Post, “officers arrived at the El Wauteke Night Club just after 2 a.m. Sunday morning and found the victim in the parking lot.” Police told WAVY 10, it appears “the victim was assaulted by another man during a disturbance involving several people in the night club’s parking lot.” Tragically, the victim succumbed to fatal injuries.

Our Legal Take
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 violence on or near property? What security measures, such as weapons screenings, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect patrons at the time of the shooting?
- Were any attempts made to de-escalate the initial altercation and safely and separately remove all involved parties from the premises?
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 nightclub owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims his wrongful death.
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.
