Could this Lithonia nightclub shooting have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to the victims’ families?
Gunfire outside a Lithonia nightclub Saturday morning, October 6, 2018, claiming the lives of two men.
According to FOX 5, “two people were shot outside the Blue Room nightspot on the 2600 block of Panola Road.” The victims were transported to “Grady Memorial Hospital and DeKalb Medical Center…in critical condition.”
Tragically, the AJC reports, both victims succumbed to fatal injuries. The media investigation reveals, the shooting comes only “two weeks after another fatal shooting outside a popular DeKalb night spot.”

Our Legal Take
Nightclub and parking lot 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 nightclub and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as bright parking lot lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and parking lot security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims 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 nightclub or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security, the victims’ families may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wrongful deaths.
The Murray Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of unsafe properties in Georgia, and recently obtained a $29.25 million dollar verdict in Georgia.
