Our Legal Take

Restaurant 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.

Could these Omaha gas station shootings have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Brown and Mr. Peek’s family?

Local News

Two separate shootings at an Omaha gas station reportedly claimed the life of 27-year-old Andrew Peek and left 41-year-old Johnny Brown injured Sunday morning, August 12, 2018.

According to NCN 21, Mr. Brown was shot during an altercation outside a “gas station at 30th and Dodge Streets,” shortly after 1:30 a.m. He was transported to Nebraska Medical Center with injuries.

A few hours later, Mr. Peek was fatally shot during a possible “carjacking” at the same gas station, per Omaha World Herald reports. Police told media they do not believe the two incidents were related.

Our Legal Take

Gas station 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 these shootings may have been prevented.

  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, clear windows, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Peek and Mr. Brown at the time of the shootings?
  • Were any additional security precautions implemented by the gas station owner or management following the first 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 family of Andrew Peek may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss. Additionally, Mr. Brown may pursue legal claims for his 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.
