JONESBORO NEWS

Gunfire erupted early Saturday morning, August 17, 2019 at a Jonesboro, Georgia gas station leaving a woman tragically injured.

As reported by AJC.com, “[o]fficers were dispatched to the Exxon on Jonesboro Road about 3:45 a.m.”

Two men opened fire at the gas station and when officers arrived they found a woman who had been shot outside the store.

According to the report, “the victim was an innocent bystander and not the target of the shooting.”

The victim was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital in critical condition.

The suspects fled the scene.

The investigation is ongoing.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Gas Station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises they are visiting. The level of security provided at the property is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • What security measures, such as monitored surveillance cameras, clear windows, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was management aware of any suspicious persons or activity on property prior to the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the property owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for her injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect her interests.
