Could the tragic loss of this Tulsa father have been prevented?
A shooting outside a bar in Tulsa reportedly claimed the life of 49-year-old Tyrone Mitchell and left another man injured Sunday evening, June 3, 2018.
According to ABC 8, Mr. Mitchell and another man were leaving “Torchy’s Briar Patch near 11th and 129th East Avenue…when police say at least ten people confronted them and started a fight.” The altercation apparently escalated into gunfire. Tragically, Mr. Mitchell suffered a gunshot wound to the leg and bled to death while trying to escape, per Tulsa World reports. The second victim was struck in the head. His current condition and identity have not been released.

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.
Recent crime reports from Spotcrime.com reveal a number of violent crimes in the surrounding area. Was the bar owner aware of local criminal activity? If so, what additional security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were implemented to protect patrons and deter future crime?
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 or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Tyrone Mitchell may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims his wrongful death. Additionally, the second victim of this shooting may pursue legal claims for his 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. 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.
