Did an apartment security failure contribute to the death of an Atlanta woman?
A woman was reportedly shot and killed outside of the Deerfield Gardens apartment complex in southwest Atlanta Thursday morning, February 2, 2017.
According to CBS 46, gunfire erupted “around 2:30 a.m. at the Deerfield Gardens apartments on the 2900 block of Campbellton Road.”
Responding officers apparently discovered “a woman in her mid-20’s shot at least once inside the back seat of a vehicle,” per 11 Alive reports. Tragically, she succumbed to fatal injuries.

Our Legal Take
Apartment complex 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 to those at the property and whether this senseless shooting may have been prevented.
- How did the assailants gain entry to the property? What security measures, such as gated entry, surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and security patrols, were in place and working at the time of the shooting?
- Were any additional security precautions implemented by the apartment complex owner or management company to deter crime and protect residents, following media reports of prior gun violence?
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 failed to provide adequate security, the victim’s family may elect to pursue legal claims for her 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.
