Residents and guests of apartment buildings have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment building is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
  • Was the property owner or manager aware of any suspicious activity prior to the shooting?
  • Were any security personnel at the property?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • Were security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What protocol was in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting? 
  • Was the property owner or manager aware of any suspicious persons or suspicious activity on the property prior to the shooting?
  • Have authorities been to the property on prior occasions?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss. 

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victim’s family retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.
