Did negligent security contribute to the death of Marcus Drummer at a Savannah, Georgia apartment complex and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?

SAVANNAH NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Savannah apartment complex early Sunday, February 17, 2019.  According to WJCL.com, “one man is dead after a shooting Sunday Night at…Apartments, off Abercorn and White Bluff roads.”  WTOC.com reports that “[p]olice arrived just before 10 p.m. and found 24-year-old Marcus Drummer with life-threatening injuries. [Mr.] Drummer later succumbed to his injuries.”  The news outlet reports that “Mr. Drummer was a student at Savannah State.”

The media reports indicate that authorities are investigating but have no suspects.

 

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 at the apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on property?
  • If prior incidents of violence exist, did the property owners do anything to address past incidents?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Drummer 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 failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Mr. Drummer’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 in Georgia 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 Mr. Drummer’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
