Could the senseless loss of this young man have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Boykins’ family?

Security measures are under scrutiny after 27-year-old Daqual Boykins was reportedly shot and killed in a south Fulton apartment complex Wednesday morning, October 31, 2018.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, gunfire erupted “at the Hickory Park apartments in the 4900 block of Delano Road just after midnight.” Tragically, Mr. Boykins succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene. Police told FOX 5, investigators “do not have a suspect or suspects or motive at this time.”

The complex was apparently the location of a prior fatal shooting in May 2012, per AJC reports. Additionally, “[w]indows, walls and cars were riddled with bullets” during an October 2014 shooting, leaving Hickory Park residents “terrified” according to WSBTV 2.

Was negligent security a factor in this fatal Atlanta apartment shooting? Read Our Legal Take below to find out if Mr. Boykins’ family may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.

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 tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What additional security measures, such as gated entry, fencing, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner and management, following media reports of prior gun violence on property?

By law, property owners in Georgia 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 owners failed to provide adequate security, Daqual Boykins’ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.

The Murray Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of unsafe properties in Georgia, and recently obtained a $29.25 million dollar verdict in Georgia.

Could this tragic Buckhead apartment shooting have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Narvaes-Pozos’ family?

Gunfire erupted “at the Allure at Brookwood apartments on Peachtree Valley Road” early Thursday morning, November 1, 2018, claiming the life of Adalberto Narvaes-Pozos and leaving Tomas Garcia Carillo injured, according to The AJC.

Investigators told WSB-TV 2, “the suspect walked up from behind and asked the victims to be let inside. Seconds later, the suspect pulled out a gun.” The assailant apparently opened fire when the victims attempted to escape, fatally striking Mr. Narvaes-Pozos and leaving Mr. Carillo with “an injury to his hand.”

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 property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property and, if so, were residents made aware of such criminal activity?
  • What security measures and access controls, such as gated and ID-controlled entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?

By law, property owners in Georgia 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 or property management company failed to provide adequate security, Adalberto Narvaes-Pozos’ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.
