In Recent Months, IHOP Changed Their Security Measures.
Many people believe the shooting at IHOP may have been prevented if IHOP had extra security for late-night hours. According to the Taylor County Sheriff's Office, up until about three months ago, IHOP paid to have two deputies at the restaurant on the weekends during late night through early morning.
They provided this security measure for about six years but in December, management decided to end it because of costs.
