Local News

Security measures are under scrutiny following the death of 20-year-old Jaivon Lee Jones, killed in a Lake City mobile home park shooting Sunday afternoon, January 27, 2019.

According to News 13, gunfire broke out at “the Coker Mobile Home Trailer Park on South Morris Street,” shortly before 1:00 p.m. Mr. Jones was transported to the hospital, where he succumbed to fatal injuries.

Lake City police have since identified a suspect, per WPDE reports.

Our Legal Take

Mobile home park 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 on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, visible surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Jones 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 mobile home complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Jaivon Lee Jones’ family 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 victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
