HOUSTON – The widow of a man fatally shot in the parking lot of a Northeast Houston nightclub last year is suing the establishment, per Harris County District Court records.
Humble resident Sabrina Olarosa-Garcia filed a lawsuit against Escapade Houston Corp. on Oct. 25 on behalf of the late Ruben Acosta Lozano’s children in the Harris County 190th District Court. Rubio Acosta, another child of the decedent, is also a plaintiff in the case.
Per recent court papers, Olarosa-Garcia witnessed the moment her spouse perished on the premises of Escapade 2001 the night of Apr. 10, 2015.
The complaint asserts that the defendant knew the area surrounding the business, located at 11903 Eastex Fwy., was dangerous but failed to take action that would have prevented the Apr. 10, 2015, death of Lozano.
“Within one mile of this entertainment complex, there were numerous previous crimes, that were recent, frequent, similar, and made public to Escapade,” the original petition says.
“This incident was foreseeable to Escapade and the plaintiff was a foreseeable victim of this attack.”
Lozano’s surviving relatives consequently seek unspecified monetary damages.
They are represented by attorney Jeffrey N. Todd of The Law Firm of Alton C. Todd in Friendswood.
