Could this senseless shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Roberson?

Security measures are in question after 27-year-old Roberson Lee was shot and injured at a Macon nightclub Sunday morning, July 8, 2018.

According to The Macon Telegraph, gunfire erupted “at Mystique Touch Lounge on 1715 Shurling Drive,” around 4 a.m. Police told 13 WMAZ “there was an argument at the club and one of the people involved pulled out a pistol and started shooting.” Mr. Lee was transported to the hospital with multiple gunshot wounds.

Was negligent security a factor in this Macon nightclub shooting and could this tragedy have been prevented?  Read Our Legal Take below to find out if Mr. Lee may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.

Our Legal Take

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

  • How did a gun gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as weapons screenings, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Roberson at the time of the shooting?
  • Were any attempts made by nightclub security or management to de-escalate the initial altercation and safely and separately remove all those involved from the premises, prior to an escalation to gunfire? 

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 nightclub owner or management failed to provide adequate security, Roberson Lee may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.

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.
