Local News

Gunfire rang out at an Atlanta, Georgia restaurant and Lounge early Saturday morning, May 25, 2019, leaving one man dead and 2 others injured.  According to WSBtv.com, “[t]he shooting happened Saturday at the Atlantis Restaurant and Lounge off Piedmont Circle Northeast as the lounge was starting to close.”  11Alive.com is reporting, “a male got into a dispute with lounge staffers over the price of admission. At some point, the male pulled out a handgun and began shooting.”  Two other people were shot and treated for injuries according to the report.  The deceased male victim was an employee and identified as “John David Price II, 42,” according to WSBtv.com

Police continue to search for the suspect according to the media reports.

Our Legal Take

Business employees and patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
  • Were security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, security personnel, and security patrol in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?
  • Does the nightclub have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?

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 property owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the family of John David Price II may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.  Additionally, any other injured victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their injuries.

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 family of John David Price II and any other victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Our Legal Take

Parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • Do the owners have any protocol for controlling ingress and egress to the parking lot?
  • What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim and others at the time of the shooting?

WSBtv.com is reporting police arrived “just after 2 a.m. and discovered a 23-year-old man with multiple gunshot wounds…He was later identified as Ezra Whitehead.”

Media outlets report police are still searching for the shooter.

Our Legal Take

Bar patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • Were authorities called when the initial argument escalated in intensity?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Whitehead and others 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 nightclub owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, Mr. Whitehead may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.
