Gas Station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises they are visiting. The level of security provided at the property is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
  • Was the property owner or manager aware of any suspicious activity prior to the shooting?
  • Were any security personnel at the property?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • Were security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What protocol was in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting? 
  • Was the property owner or manager aware of any suspicious persons or suspicious activity on the property prior to the shooting?
  • Have authorities been to the property on prior occasions?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the property owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the families of the deceased victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss. 

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the families of the deceased victims retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Gas Station Security Lapse? Our Legal Take: 1 Shot in Fuel Depot Gas Station Robbery

Local News

A man was reportedly shot and injured outside the Fuel Depot gas station in Houston early Tuesday, August 4, 2015.

KHOU News reports, three assailants robbed two men outside the Fuel Depot gas station store on Bissonnet, shortly before 5:30am. One of the suspects apparently opened fire during the robbery, striking one of the two men. The victim was transported to the hospital with injuries, and there have apparently been no updates on the victim’s condition.

Police are still searching for suspects.

Our Legal Take

As police continue to search for suspects, The Murray Law Firm is questioning whether this incident may have been avoidable and whether a potential gas station security lapse may also hold responsibility in this shooting.  According to data published by, 8.3% of all armed robberies occur in a gas station/convenience store setting.  Based on this information, the following questions become relevant:

  •  What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and a security or police presence, were in place at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been previous incidents of violence on or near the property and, if so, what security precautions were implemented by the gas station owner or management to protect patrons and deter crime?

Generally, the law requires property owners to protect all patrons legally on premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the Fuel Depot gas station owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may elect to pursue a legal claim for his injuries. Under such a claim, the injured victim may be entitled to substantial compensation.  Given the complexities of pursuing such a potential 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.  Based upon its prior experience in handling gas station security negligence claims, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a through, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:



If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
