Could this violent Decatur home invasion have been prevented, and are justice and compensation available to the victims?
A violent Decatur apartment home invasion reportedly left a mother and her young son injured August 27, 2018.
According to 11 Alive, the intruder “forced his way into a home on Citrus Court in Decatur.” The mother and son were discovered with “multiple gunshot wounds.” Their current conditions have not been released. Police have since made an arrest in connection with the shooting, per AJC reports.

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 shooting may have been prevented.
- How did the intruder gain entry to the complex? What access controls and security measures, such as gated entry, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, 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 apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their injuries.
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.
