On Wednesday night, college night at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California became the scene of the latest mass shooting. Authorities have confirmed that the incident resulted in 12 fatalities (including the shooter) and many other injuries. The community in Thousand Oaks, California is shaken, especially considering that the city ranks as one of the safest cities in the nation. No one knows why the 28-year-old Marine veteran opened fired into the country bar, which was packed with a number of students from California Lutheran University, California State University Channel Islands, and Pepperdine University. Based on reports, a first responder-an officer with the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department-was killed in the incident. As surviving victims are released from hospitals and find solace in the arms of their friends and families, a common question keeps arising: who is liable for the shooting? Without a doubt, the shooter is the party that has fault for the deaths and the injuries caused by his unfounded attack into the crowded bar. However, other parties could have liability in the incident-such as the owner of the bar. How could have anyone known to prepare for a mass shooting? Motives for the shooting are unknown; there is no way that anyone-especially the bar owner-could have known that there would be a mass shooting in his or her establishment. However, the bar owner could face some liability in the incident and be the subject of multiple lawsuits.
