Could this South Bend gas station shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the young victim?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a 17-year-old girl was shot during an apparent robbery outside the “[a] gas station on West Western Avenue on Monday, Sep. 24,” according to 95.3 MNC.

According to WSBT 22, the victim “is being evaluated for paralysis” after suffering multiple gunshot wounds to “the chest and arms.” Police have since arrested two people on charges including “attempted robbery resulting in serious bodily injury.”

Our Legal Take

Gas station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this unconscionable shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as monitored surveillance cameras, clear windows, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the gas station owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the young victim and her family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Gunfire erupted outside a “gas station at 3090 W. Sunrise Blvd.” August 23, 2018, leaving one man critically injured, according to the Sun-Sentinel. Police told media the shooting occurred “as the victim was leaving the gas station and convenience store and may have been the result of a robbery.”

The Florida Sheriff’s Association warns, “there has been an increase in reports of theft at gas stations around the country.” Valuables are often left in plain sight inside unlocked vehicles while customers are distracted at the pump or paying inside, creating an easy target for thieves and carjackers. Unfortunately, these crimes can escalate into violence with tragic consequences.

The FSA urges patrons to take safety precautions at the pump:

  • Pick stations that are well-lit and have video surveillance cameras at the pump.
  • Keep valuables out of plain view in your vehicle and lock the doors, even if you are going inside for a moment.
  • Don’t let your cell phone distract you.
  • Always remove your keys and lock the doors while you are pumping gas.
