Three men were reportedly injured when gunfire erupted outside a Washington D.C. strip mall Thursday afternoon, May 31, 2018.

According to WJLA, the shooting occurred “in the 3200 block of 22nd Street, SE.” Police told media “two men suffered non-life-threatening injuries.” A third victim was transported to the hospital with “serious” injuries. Their identities and current conditions have not been released.

The triple shooting is the latest in what D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser is calling “an unacceptable spike in violence,” per WTOP reports.

Our Legal Take

Shopping center patrons 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 incident may have been prevented.

  • What additional security measures, such as surveillance cameras and security patrols, were implemented by the shopping center owner to protect patrons and deter crime, following media reports of recent local violence?

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 shopping center owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their 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.
