One man was killed at the scene, according to the report.

Our Legal Take

Gas station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the gas station is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior violent incidents near or on the property?
  • What security measures were present to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was there any reports of suspicious individuals on the property prior to the incident?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the gas station owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victim’s family retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Gas Station and convenience store patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises they are visiting. The level of security provided at the property is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • What security measures, such as monitored surveillance cameras, clear windows, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?
  • Was management aware of any suspicious persons or activity on property prior to the shooting?

Security Failure? Our Legal Take: 1 Injured in Stone Mountain BP Gas Station Shooting

Did negligent security contribute to this gas station shooting? Read Our Legal Take to find out if the victim may have a legal avenue for justice and a claim for compensation.

Local News

A shooting outside a BP gas station in Stone Mountain reportedly left one person with critical injuries Friday, November 4, 2016.

According to 11 Alive News, the shooting occurred outside “a BP gas station on Redan Road.” Apparently “an argument” escalated into gunfire, leaving one victim “in critical condition.”

Police have not yet identified a suspect or a motive. Another Redan Road gas station shooting occurred in October 2015, per FOX 5 reports.

Our Legal Take

Gas station patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on premises of the establishment they are visiting. The Murray Law Firm regularly represents victims of gas station violence in Georgia, and questions the level of security provided and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place to protect patrons at the time of the shooting? 
  • Was the gas station owner aware of any prior incidents of violence on or near the property?  If so, were additional security precautions implemented by the property owner or management to deter crime?

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 gas station owner or management failed to provide adequate security, the victim may elect to seek justice and pursue a legal claim for 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.
