Did negligent security contribute to the unconscionable shooting of a sleeping Lithonia child?
Gunfire erupted outside the Windward Forest apartment complex in Lithonia Wednesday night, March 7, 2018, striking a 10-year-old girl as she slept in her apartment home.
According to the AJC, a gunman opened fire into an apartment building “at the Windword Forest apartments in the 2600 Embarcadero Drive,” shortly after 9:30 p.m. The young victim’s father told WSB-TV 2 his family was sleeping when a bullet pierced their home and struck his daughter in the leg. The child was transported to the hospital with injuries. Her current condition has not been released.

Our Legal Take
Apartment complex 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 to those at the property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
- How did the gunman gain entry to the complex? What security measures, such as gated-entry, surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect residents 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 apartment complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the young victim and her family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries.
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.
