Could the death from a shooting at a Glendale bar have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?
Gunfire rang out at a Glendale, Arizona bar early Saturday morning, April 6, 2019, leaving one man dead. According to 12News.com, “Glendale police officers responded to reports of shots being fired in the area of 67th Avenue and Bethany Home Road, when they arrived at the scene, the found an injured man.” ABC15.com reports “[t]he shooting occurred outside La Rubia Y La Morena Bar, also known as RM Bar, around 2:30 a.m.” After police found the injured man “they attempted life-saving measures on the shooting victim; however, the adult male who was shot did not survive his injuries.”
The media reports indicate that no suspect has been identified at this time.
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 prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
- Were security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, security personnel, and security patrol in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
- Does the nightclub have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
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 property owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the victim’s 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 the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
