Shooting at Tropical Palms Banquet Hall Injures Five People

Shooting at Tropical Palms:  Security Guard was late

shooting, tropical palms, kansas city, missouri, security, inadequate securityKansas City, Missouri Police were called to the Tropical Palms Banquet Hall at 5614 E. 87th Street  late Saturday night, March 9th,  on the report of a shooting. Police said the shooting  started inside the building and moved into the parking lot.  As many as fifty people were in the hall before the security guard showed up.  Those people were not checked for weapons.

The event was marketed on social media as the “All Gold Everything/March  Madness Twerkfest” and — until the shooting — went completely undetected by  Kansas City’s Regulated Industries Division.

It appears that a dance hall permit was not obtained prior to the event.  When applying for a dance hall permit, the event promoter must list the security company that they have hired.  This allows the city to make sure property security has been arranged.  Various other permits may be required depending on whether alcohol and/or food is going to be served.

Kansas City attorney Brian Amick is very familiar with shooting cases caused by inadequate security.  Brian represented the families of Nathan Buie and DeMarco Harvey who were tragically gunned down outside the Knights of Columbus Hall on Wornall Road in Kansas City, Missouri on July 23rd, 2006.  The shooting at the Knights of Coumbus Hall was one of the largest mass shootings in Kansas City History.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the individuals shot at the Tropical Palms banquet hall as well as to the familes of all shooting vicitims.  These tragedies are truly senseless crimes.
