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 bright lighting, 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 the initial argument and did management try to de-escalate the situation 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 family of Clintavious Mister may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.

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 family of Clintavious Mister retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Could the shooting death at a Riverdale gas station have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the family of the victim?

Local News

Gunfire erupted at a Riverdale, Georgia gas station Wednesday night, May 8, 2019, leaving one man dead.

According to Fox5Atlanta.com, “[s]hots were fired late Wednesday night at the Shell on Highway 85, just north of the Riverdale city limits.”  11Alive.com is reporting “surveillance video shows that some type of verbal altercation occurred between the victim and the shooters before the victim got into his car…two people opened fire on the man as he was driving away from the gas station, leaving at least 20 shell casings on the road.”  The suspects fled the scene by vehicle and have not been identified according to media reports.

Our Legal Take

Gas station and convenience store 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 violent incidents near or on the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras and security patrols, were present to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was there any effort made to de-escalate the argument prior to 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 property owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the family of victim 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 family of victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
