Did negligent security contribute to this tragic loss of life and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Redditt’s family?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted outside a South Fulton, Georgia Shopping Center on Friday evening, March 2, 2019, leaving one male teen shot and killed.  According to CBS46.com, “[a]n 18-year-old was fatally shot in a Kroger shopping center off of Old National Highway…the shooting took place around 7 p.m. in the 6000 block.” WSBtv.com is reporting “[s]urveillance video caught the last seconds of [the] teen’s life as he left a barbershop in the mall.”  The news story reports the victim as “18-year-old Willie Redditt IV.”

The suspect fled the scene and the investigation is ongoing according to media outlets.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

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

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • Was there any reports of suspicious activity prior to the incident?
  • What security measures, such as monitored surveillance cameras and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Redditt 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 property owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Willie Reddit’s 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. Redditt’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:

ABA Center for Professional ResponsibilityA LAWYER “SHALL NOT” CONTACT A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT THROUGH A “LIVE TELEPHONE” OR AN “IN-PERSON” VISIT.

– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.

If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.
