Could this senseless loss of life have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Kendle’s family?
Security measures are under scrutiny after 30-year-old Christopher Kendle was shot and killed outside “the Shannon Lakes apartment complex off of Bluffington Road Sunday night,” November 25, 2018, according to WSB-TV 2.
Police told FOX 5 they are still searching for suspects and a motive. As investigators continue to search for a shooter, a potentially fatal security lapse is in question.
Was negligent security a factor in this fatal Union City apartment shooting? Read Our Legal Take below to find out if Mr. Kendle’s family may have legal avenues for justice and claims for substantial compensation in Georgia.
Our Legal Take
Apartment 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 at the apartment complex and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
- How did the shooter(s) gain entry to the complex?
- What security measures, such as gated entry, fencing, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Kendle 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 company failed to provide adequate security, the family of Christopher Kendle may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.
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.
