According to ABC 15, gunfire erupted “near 67th Avenue and Indian School Road,” shortly before 2:00 a.m. Responding officers discovered Ms. Perez “in a parking lot.” Tragically she succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene.

A 20-year-old male victim was transported to the hospital “in extremely critical condition,” per AZ Central News reports. His current condition has not been released.

Our Legal Take

Parking lot and apartment complex 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 where this shooting took place and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • How did the gunmen gain access to the property? What security measures, such as bright lighting, security patrols, and surveillance cameras, were in place to deter crime at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? If so, were any additional security precautions implemented by the property owner and management to protect guests? 

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 owner or management of the parking lot failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Jennifer Perez may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her wrongful death. Additionally, the other victim of this shooting may 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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
