A 44-year-old Fairfield resident was reportedly shot and injured during a shoot-out outside a Fairfield strip mall Monday, May 2, 2016.

According to KCRA News 3, an exchange of gunfire broke out between two men “in the parking lot of a strip mall in the 1700 block of North Texas Street,” around 11:40 a.m.

An innocent bystander was apparently caught in the hail of gunfire and suffered multiple gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. His identity and current condition have not been released.

Our Legal Take

Shopping center and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the shopping center and whether this unconscionable attack may have been prevented.

    What security measures, such as surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place to protect patrons at the time of the shooting?

  • Recent crime reports reveal a number of local burglaries and assaults. Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property and, if so, were any additional security precautions implemented by the property owner to deter crime?

Generally, parking lot and shopping center owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the property owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue a legal claim 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. 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.
