Did negligent security contribute to this motel shooting and are justice and compensation available to Shannon Williams?

LOCAL NEWS

A young man was shot at a Macon, Georgia motel Tuesday evening, April 30, 2019.  According to 13WMAZ.com, “deputies responded to the American Best Value Inn on Romeiser Road just before 8 p.m. Tuesday.”  Deputies arrived and found “21-year-old Shannon Williams suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen.”  WGXA.tv is reporting ” the victim was taken to The Medical Center, Navicent Health where they’re being treated for non-life threatening injuries.”  

According to media reports, a suspect has been identified but the suspect has not been detained yet.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

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

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Shannon Williams at the time of the shooting?
  • Was there any reports of suspicious activity 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 motel owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Shannon Williams may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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 Shannon Williams retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
