Could a Security Failure Have Contributed to This Tragic Loss?

Local News

21-year-old Kalin Lubben was reportedly shot and killed outside the Sunset View Apartments Monday night, April 10, 2017.

According to The Renton Patch, police discovered Mr. Lubben “in a stairway” at the “Sunset View Apartments…at 2101 Southwest Sunset Boulevard,” around 11:00 p.m. However, police told The Seattle Times that the fatal shooting occurred “hours earlier, at approximately 5:30 p.m.”

The apartment complex was apparently the scene of a prior shooting investigation in June 2014, per KOMO News.

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 unconscionable shooting may have been prevented.

  • Where was apartment security and management during the 5.5 hour lapse between the shooting and discovery of Mr. Lubben?
  • Were any additional security precautions, such as gated entry, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, implemented by the apartment complex owner following prior media reports of gun violence? 

Generally, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner or management company failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Kalin Lubben may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims his wrongful death.

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.
