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