Did negligent security contribute to this senseless loss and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Romero’s family?
32-year-old Nicholas Romero was shot and killed “outside of the Windmill Apartments, in the 4000 block of Lacy Lane,” Saturday morning, December 8, 2018, according to The Gazette.
Police told KRDO 13 News responding officers discovered Mr. Romero around 3 a.m. Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene.
The complex was reprtedly the location of a prior shooting investigation in November 2017, per KKTV reports. The incidents raise grave questions over apartment complex security measures.
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.
- How did the gunman gain entry to the complex?
- What additional security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were implemented by the complex owner following media reports of prior gun violence on property?
Generally, property owners 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 to protect those on its premises, Nicholas Romero’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their loss.
Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, 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. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
