Our Legal Take

Apartment 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.

  • How did the gunmen gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim 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 apartment complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim’s 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.

Did an apartment security lapse contribute to the shooting of a 4-year-old boy?

Local News

Apartment security measures are in question after a 4-year-old boy was shot and injured inside his grandmother’s King’s Row apartment home Tuesday night, May 15, 2018.

According to ABC 13, a gun fight broke out at the “King’s Row apartment complex in the 4100 block of Barberry just after 9:30 p.m.” A stray bullet flew into an apartment where a grandmother was watching television with her grandson. The young boy was rushed to Texas Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

During an impassioned speech before media, the boy’s grandmother implored the Houston Mayor to take action. “It’s not right for a 4-year-old to have to go through this…do something. That’s all I’m asking. Do something before another child ends up shot.”

Nearly a year ago, a community activist told KPRC 2 the King’s Row complex needed to improve security. “They have the money to hire adequate and thorough security.”
