DUNWOODY NEWS

A man was shot to death at a Dunwoody apartment complex on the morning of April 8, 2019.  According to ReporterNewspapers.net, “police received multiple 911 calls around 5:20 a.m….at the Arrive Perimeter apartments. On arrival, police found an unidentified man, suffering a gunshot wound, in the complex’s parking deck.” That victim was later pronounced deceased according to the news report.  WSBtv.com talked with neighbors of the complex, and one neighbor in the next building over who said “the gunshots echoed and were so loud that they woke her up.”  Another neighbor heard the gunshots, “it was rapid fire and there were more than just three.”

The investigation is ongoing according to the media outlets.

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 the property?
  • 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 the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access to the parking gargage?

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, the deceased victim’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 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 victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
