Could This Senseless Atlanta Apartment Shooting Have Been Prevented?
32-year-old Jerrod Dumas is bravely recovering after surviving a violent robbery outside an Atlanta apartment complex June 20, 2017.
According to WSB Radio, Mr. Dumas was visiting a friend at a Huff Road apartment complex when he was approached by the gunman. WSB-TV 2 reports, Mr. Dumas was at the apartment call box when an armed man “stole his watch and other items and then shot him five times.” As there was “no one in sight” and Mr. Dumas could not speak, he drove until he could flag down a police officer for help. One month and multiple surgeries later, Mr. Dumas told media he is now focused on his recovery and family.

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.
- Where was apartment security and management at the time of the robbery-shooting?
- What security measures, such as surveillance cameras, bright lighting and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect guests at the time of the shooting?
By law, property owners in Georgia are required to protect all residents and guests 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, Jerrod Dumas may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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.
