Nightclub 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:

  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Does the property owner or management have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • Was the property aware of any suspicious persons or suspicious activity on the property prior to the shooting? 
  • Have prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
  • Were any security personnel at the property?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • Were security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What protocol was in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting? 
  • Have authorities been to the property on prior occasions?

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 families of Joseph Johnson and Roberius Thornton may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss. In addition, any injured victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries.

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 and investigation 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 families of Joseph Johnson and Roberius Thornton and any injured victims retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.
