Did negligent security contribute to this violent Houston apartment robbery?
Gunfire erupted during an apparent robbery at the Green Oak Village apartment complex Monday morning, December 4, 2017, leaving one man injured.
According to The Houston Chronicle, the victim “was robbed and shot” while “walking through the Green Oak Village apartment complex at 3401 Blalock Road,” shortly after 1:00 a.m. He was transported to Ben Taub Hospital. His current condition has not been released.
Green Oak Village was apparently the subject of a fatal shooting investigation in August 2017, per ABC 13 reports. In that incident, the victim’s mother told media she begged her son to leave the complex after learning of “several robberies” nearby.

Our Legal Take
Apartment residents 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 shooting may have been prevented.
- What security measures, such as gated-entry, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner and management following media reports of prior gun violence on 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, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims 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.
