Did a hotel security lapse contribute to the death of this young man?
A man was reportedly shot and killed outside two Atlanta motels Sunday evening, November 5, 2017.
According to FOX 5 gunfire erupted “in the parking lot between the Motel 6 and Super 8” motels on “Chamblee Tucker Road,” shortly before 8:00 p.m. Tragically, a young man “in his 20s” succumbed to fatal injuries.
Police are apparently still searching for a suspect and motive, per AJC reports.

Our Legal Take
Hotel 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 tragedy may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, security patrols, bright lighting, and surveillance cameras, 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 those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the motel owner failed to provide adequate security, victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
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.
