LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Miami Gardens, Florida apartment complex Sunday, May 19, 2019, leaving two men injured.  According to WSVN.com, “Miami Gardens Police and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units were called to the scene along the 17600 block of Northwest 27th Avenue, near the Palmetto Expressway, just before 1 p.m., Sunday.”  When officers arrived they found the victims “suffering from gunshot wounds.”  According to the report, the victims were “airlifted them to Jackson Memorial Hospital’s Ryder Trauma Center in unknown condition.”  NBCMiami.com is reporting that family members “identified the victims to NBC 6 as 20-year-old Deondre McDuffy and 35-year-old Samuel Streeter.”

The incident remains under investigation and no suspects have been identified according to the media reports.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access to the 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 apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Deondre McDuffy and Samuel Streeter may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their 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 Deondre McDuffy and Samuel Streeter retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Could the shooting death at a Greensboro gas station have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the family of Furmann Bailey?

Local News

Gunfire erupted at a Greensboro, North Carolina gas station Wednesday night, May 8, 2019, leaving one man dead.

According to MyFox8.com, “[t]he shooting was reported at 7:33 at a…gas station at 3220 E. Gate City Blvd.”  At the scene officers found “20-year-old Furmann Leshawn Bailey dead in a vehicle with at least one gunshot wound,” according to the report.  WXII12.com is reporting, “[n]o suspect information is available right now and officers say the investigation is ongoing…A motive is still unknown at this time.”

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.
