Local News

Police have allegedly made an arrest in the violent Columbus gas station robbery, which left two employees injured Thursday afternoon, December 7, 2017.

According to The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, one clerk was shot and a second was beaten during “an armed robbery” at the “BP Food Mart” on Veterans Parkway, shortly before 5:00 p.m. WRBL reports, two suspects entered the gas station and one opened fire during the course of the robbery. Police have apparently since made an arrest in connection with the shooting.

Our Legal Take

Gas station patrons and employees have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided to those at the property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as surveillance cameras, clear windows, safety glass, bright lighting, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime at the time of the shooting?
  • Have employees been offered safety training to handle violent situations?

By law, property owners in Georgia are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm.  As the victims were apparently working at the time of the shooting, they are most likely entitled to substantial workers’ compensation benefits.

Unfortunately, employers and insurance companies are often more concerned with their own financial exposure than providing victims with the long term compensation and medical care they deserve. As such, it is imperative the victims retain an experienced workers’ compensation attorney immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed.

Could This Tragedy Have Been Prevented?

Local News

25-year-old Carlos Lemmons was reportedly shot and killed outside of Spin Cycle Coin Laundry early Friday morning, April 28, 2017.

According to The AJC, the shooting occurred outside the “Coin Laundry in the 3500 block of Memorial Drive…located in Belvedere Plaza.” Gunfire apparently erupted when Mr. Lemmons, an overnight manager at the laundromat, “approached three men who were loitering outside the business.” Sadly, Mr. Lemmons leaves behind a young daughter.  Distraught family members apparently gathered outside the laundromat following the shooting, per 11 Alive reports.

Our Legal Take

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

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? If so, what additional security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place and working at the time of the shooting?

By law, property owners in Georgia are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm.  Should the facts of this matter reveal that the shopping center owner or management company failed to provide adequate security, the family of Carlos Lemmons may elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, as Mr. Lemmons was working at the time of his death, his family is almost certainly entitled to substantial workers compensation benefits per Georgia law.

Based upon its long, extensive, and successful experience in handling negligent security cases against property owners in the State of Georgia, 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.
