Local News

Statesboro police are reportedly investigating a shooting outside the Campus Crossing Apartments, which left three people injured Thursday afternoon, December 1, 2016.

According to WTOC News, the shooting “took place at an off-campus apartment near Georgia Southern University.” Police apparently responded to the “Campus Crossing Apartments” where they found “three confirmed victims who suffered gunshot wounds.” The victims’ current conditions have not been released. Police have apparently since made an arrest in connection with the shooting.

The complex was apparently the subject of a fatal shooting investigation in October, per WSAV reports.  The news story suggests that “one person was shot and killed in [the] Campus Crossings apartment complex located on Lanier Drive, near Southern’s campus.”

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 property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place and working at the time of the shooting?
  •  Were any additional security precautions implemented by the apartment complex owner or management to deter crime, following WSAV reports of a prior shooting in October?

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 company failed to provide adequate security, the victims may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for their 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.
