Did negligent security contribute to the tragic death of Jarvis Lee Jones and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Jones’ family?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at an Augusta, Georgia apartment complex Wednesday, February 27, 2019, leaving one man dead according to a media report.

According to WRDW.com, “the shooting happened at the River Glen apartments on the 200 block of Telfair Street and East Boundary.” The news story reports “31-year-old Jarvis Lee Jones from Augusta was shot one time and was pronounced dead on the scene at 5:15 p.m.”  WRDW.com reports “a man has been arrested after a deadly shooting in Augusta Wednesday night at River Glen Apartments.”

WJBF.com has apparently reported on a shooting in the same apartment complex back in September of 2017.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Apartment residents and 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 apartment complex and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • What action was taken to address any prior violent activities on to the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Jones at the time of 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 apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the Mr. Jones’ family 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 Mr. Jones’ family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Could this nightclub shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

Augusta News

Gunfire erupted at an Augusta, Georgia nightclub early Friday morning, March 1, 2019, injuring one woman.  According to WFXG.com, “[t]he Richmond County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an early Friday morning shooting at the Edge Nightclub in Augusta.”  WRDW.com is reporting,  “[t]he shooting stemmed from an argument between [the suspect] and five others inside the nightclub…[the suspect] and the others were asked to leave the club.”  After leaving the club, “[the suspect] retrieved a gun from her car and opened fire on the victim and four others…[t]he victim was struck in the head,” according to WRDW.com.  In a subsequent news story, WJBF.com is reporting the victim as ” 25-year-old Jaelynn Huff.”

The suspect has apparently been arrested and charged per media reports.

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 on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • Were authorities called when the initial argument escalated in intensity?
  • What nightclub security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Ms. Huff and others at the time of 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 nightclub owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, Ms. Huff  may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her 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 Ms. Huff retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
