A Lubbock woman sued the parent company of Adolph’s Bar and Grill on Wednesday.
Brittany Webb claims Adolph’s over-served an intoxicated man on New Year’s Eve. The lawsuit identified the man as Byron “Bo” Cowling Jr.
Webb, separately from the lawsuit, publicly identified Cowling as her then-boyfriend.
The lawsuit said in the early morning hours of January 1, 2018, Cowling came home with a loaded gun. The lawsuit said he was fighting with Webb which was “uncommon for his normal disposition.” The lawsuit said Cowling hit Webb in the face with the gun, then holding his own head next to hers, Cowling fired the gun into his head.
The lawsuit said Cowling was killed and Webb was injured. A police statement at the time described the shooting in the 3200 block of 110th Street as an attempted murder and suicide.
The lawsuit said before the shooting, Cowling spent approximately an hour-and-a-half at Adolf’s drinking numerous shots of liquor.
“Cowling became so intoxicated that he was an obvious danger to himself and Others,” the lawsuit said.
The lawsuit said Webb needed surgery to remove a bullet from her head and she seeks “monetary relief over $1,000,000.”
