Houston, TX, Shooting Kills 2, Injures 1 at Whistle Stop Cafe

Houston, TX -- February 12, 2020, two people were killed and one person was injured following a shooting which occurred at the Whistle Stop Cafe.

In their reports, police officials said that the incident happened at the cafe located in the 11000 block of I-45 South at around 5:30 p.m.

From police, it appears that an altercation occurred in the parking lot of the cafe, and two men in their 20s suffered critical injuries as a result. It appears they died at the scene. A third man, also said to be in his 20s, suffered a serious gunshot wound to the head. EMS transported him to a hospital where he continues to recover.

Additional details surrounding the incident remain unclear at this time.


Obviously the details surrounding how this shooting occurred are important to look into--most everyone understands this. One facet of this, however, is looking into the business where this happened. It's possible they could have taken steps to prevent this from happening.

Generally speaking, property owners have a responsibility to keep their guests safe. If a particular business has issues with violence and crime, those are things they need to take steps to address, either by trying to quell future incidents or taking steps to warn visitors that they're in danger by being on the property. If they fail to take these steps, and people get hurt in a future incident, the business may be liable for their injuries or death.

It's not really clear what exactly happened here, so there needs to be a more thorough investigation into these and other factors to find out what steps could have been taken to prevent this tragedy.
