Local News

Gunfire erupted at a Greensboro, North Carolina gas station Thursday afternoon, June 20, 2019, leaving one man dead.

According to MyFox8.com, “about 1:06 p.m. Thursday, police responded to [a] gas station at 2107 Pyramids Village Boulevard.”  When officers arrived, they found “39-year-old Korey Lee Fitzgerald, of Greensboro, suffering from a gunshot wound.”  WFMYnews2.com is reporting, “[f]irst responders tried to perform life-saving efforts on [Mr.] Fitzgerald, but he died from his injuries.”

Police are searching for suspects and the investigation is ongoing.

Our Legal Take

Gas station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the gas station 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 there been prior violent incidents near or on the property?
  • What security measures were present to deter crime and protect Mr. Fitzgerald at the time of the shooting?
  • Was there any reports of suspicious individuals on the property prior to the incident?

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 gas station owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the family of Korey Lee Fitzgerald 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 family of Korey Lee Fitzgerald retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

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 tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior violent incidents near or on the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras and security patrols, were present to deter crime and protect Mr. Bailey at the time of the shooting?
  • Was there any reports of suspicious individuals on the property prior to the incident?

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 property owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the family of Furmann Leshawn Bailey may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

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 family of Furmann Leshawn Bailey retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
