36-year-old Alma Delia Contreras Martinez was reportedly stabbed during an attempted robbery outside a Raleigh Food Lion Thursday evening, January 11, 2018.

According to WNCN, a male suspect approached Ms. Martinez “in the parking lot of a Food Lion…and tried to rob her,” around 6:30 p.m. He allegedly “stabbed her three times in the head and three times in the back” before fleeing the scene. The News & Observer reports, Ms. Martinez was transported to Wake Medical Center with “serious, but not life threatening” injuries.

Our Legal Take

Store and parking lot 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 attack may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place 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 store or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Alma Delia Contreras Martinez 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.

Nightclub 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.

  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were implemented by the nightclub owner following prior media reports of violence on property?

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 nightclub owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the families of Jwan Tyree Smith and Harold “Cookie” Lee Gaines Jr. may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wrongful deaths. Additionally, the other victim of this shooting may pursue legal claims for his injuries.

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 apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.
