Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Fatal Shooting at The Metropolitan, Atlanta

Local News

A shooting at The Metropolitan recording studios in Atlanta reportedly claimed the lives of two men Wednesday night, April 20, 2016.

The AJC reports, the shooting occurred shortly before 8:30pm at The Metropolitan Intown Business and Arts District, which “comprises several recording studios, offices and living spaces.”

A witness who was recording a CD inside the studio told media “he heard gun shots and saw two men running.” The witness apparently believed “another group of recording artists were having a listening party” at the time.

Police have not yet identified suspects or a motive.

Our Legal Take

Patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to those in the recording studios where this senseless incident took place, and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What security measures, such as access-controlled entry, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place at the time of the shooting to protect patrons?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property and, if so, were any security precautions implemented by the property owner to deter such crime?

Generally, business owners and operators 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 operator of the recording studios failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the families of the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue a legal claim for their wrongful deaths.

Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victims’ families retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.  Based upon its prior experience in handling security negligence claims in Georgia, 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.

Motel Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Atlanta Super 8 Motel Robbery, Assault

Local News

A woman was reportedly robbed and beaten in a “Super 8 Motel room on Jonesboro Road” in Atlanta Wednesday, April 20, 2016.

Fox 54 News reports, “two males knocked on the door of hotel room and forced their way into the room….The suspects pistol-whipped [the victim] in the face and head, and stole approximately $200 and a cell phone.”

The victim was transported to the hospital with injuries. Police are still searching for the suspects.

Our Legal Take

Motel guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on property. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to residents and guests of the Super 8 motel, and whether this horrific assault may have been prevented.

    How did the suspects gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as security fencing, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to protect guests at the time of the break-in?

  • Recent crime reports reveal a number of local thefts, robberies and burglaries in the area. Were any additional security precautions implemented by the owner and management to deter such crime?

By law, motel owners are required to protect all guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm.  Should the facts of this matter reveal that the motel owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the victim may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for her injuries.

Based upon its long, extensive, and successful experience in handling negligent security cases in the State of Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the motel and property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.

Security Failure? Our Legal Take: Landings at Oak Hill Apartment Shooting

Local News

A 29-year-old woman was reportedly shot and killed inside a Landings at Oak Hill apartment home Friday morning, April 15, 2016.

According to Fox 54, the shooting occurred “around 3:45am at the Landings at Oak Hill apartment complex on the 4300 block of Flat Shoals Road in Union City.”

The 29-year-old victim was apparently struck by “one of several bullets [which] came through her window,” 11 News reports.

Police have not yet identified a suspect or motive in the shooting, presumably leaving residents once again concerned for their safety. Per AJC.com, a fatal shooting reportedly occurred at the same complex in October 2015.

Our Legal Take

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on property. Given the reported history of violence on property, The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to residents of the apartment complex and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • How did the suspect gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to protect residents at the time of the shooting?
  • Were any additional security precautions implemented by the complex owner and management, following the prior reported shooting, to deter such crime?

By law, apartment owners are required to protect all residents and guests 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, the victim’s family may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for her wrongful death.

Based upon its long, extensive, and successful experience in handling negligent security cases against apartment complexes in the State of Georgia, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the apartment and property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.
