Could the shooting at a Cobb County gas station have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?

Local News

Gunfire erupted at a Cobb County gas station Friday night, April 12, 2019, injuring one person.

According to WSBtv.com, “[t]he shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. at the Texaco station along Windy Hill Road near the Interstate 75 on ramp.”  Fox5Atlanta.com is reporting, “one person was shot and rushed to an area hospital.”  According to the news report, “the shooter fled the scene in a car after firing multiple shots in a crowded area…investigators found multiple rounds had hit across the street.”  The media outlets indicate “[t]he shooting happened just as the Atlanta Braves game was getting out at nearby SunTrust Park. Traffic was at a standstill around the shooting scene and the stadium.”

The victim nor any suspects have been identified according to the media reports.

Our Legal Take

Gas station and convenience store 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 violent incidents near or on the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras and security patrols, were present to deter crime and protect patrons at the time of the shooting?
  • Does the gas station add any extra security during busy times like a Braves baseball game?

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 owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, the victim 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 victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

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?
  • Was the motel aware of any improper activity before the incident occurred?
  • What security measures, such as guarded-entry, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. White 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 hotel owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Decarlos White’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. 

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.
