FORMER CLIENT: I had lawyers calling me, and friends telling me who I should hire…I trusted in The Murray Law Firm and I’m glad I did.

Business and parking lot 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 prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property, and were any security measures implemented to address any past incidents? 
  • Does the property have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of 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 victim’s family 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 victim’s family retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

Could the death from a shooting at an Atlanta restaurant and lounge have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the family of John David Price II?

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.
