Did a Security Failure Contribute to This Tragic Loss of Life?

According to FOX 5 News, the victim and her husband were “ambushed” while trying to “buy a cellphone…at the Woodcrest Village Apartments.” The suspects apparently robbed the couple and opened fire, fatally striking the woman.

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 tragedy may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security precautions, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and gated-entry, were in place to deter crime 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 failed to provide adequate security, the victim’s family may seek justice and 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.
