Did negligent security contribute to this senseless fatal shooting and are justice and compensation available to the victims and their families?

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted in Tallahassee early Sunday morning, February 10, 2019, killing one and injuring another according to media reports.  According to WTXL.com, “the shooting happened around 1:38 a.m. Sunday in the 2600 block of West Tennessee Street.”  When emergency personnel arrived they “immediately provided medical attention to two victims suffering from gunshot wounds. Both were taken to the hospital.”  WTXL.com further reports that “[o]ne of the victims died from their injuries.”

Media reports indicate there have been multiple incidents in reference to this location.  According to WCTV.com, “the Tallahassee Police Department has responded to more than 20 calls in the shopping plaza where the shooting happened, ranging from loud noise to disorderly conduct to aggravated assault.”   WCTV.com reports that victims and suspects have not been identified.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Bar and shopping plaza patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the establishment and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What safety measures were incorporated to protect patrons after prior police calls?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, visible surveillance cameras, security personnel and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?

Generally, bar and 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 bar or property owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for the victim’s wrongful death.  Additionally, the surviving victim may pursue legal claims for their injuries.

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 victims and their families retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:

ABA Center for Professional ResponsibilityA LAWYER “SHALL NOT” CONTACT A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT THROUGH A “LIVE TELEPHONE” OR AN “IN-PERSON” VISIT.

– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.

If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.

Could this tragic Globe bar shooting have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victims’ families?

Local News

Security measures are in question following a deadly shooting inside Jammerz Sunday night, November 11, 2018, which claimed the lives of three people and left two others injured.

According to AZ Central News, the gunman “was playing pool at the bar before opening fire just before 10:30 p.m.” Tragically, Ashley Sanchez, Daniel Albo and Cristi Licano succumbed to fatal injuries. Charlene Peak and Scott Mills suffered injuries. Their current conditions have not been released.

An ABC 15 investigation, based on “[p]aperwork filed by state regulators” alleges that, “only one employee was working at Jammerz at the time of the shooting, and was outside smoking marijuana when the suspect opened fire.” The bar has reportedly since “had it’s liquor license suspended.”

Our Legal Take

Bar patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of criminal activity on or near property?
  • How many trained employees were working inside the establishment at the time of the shooting?
  • How did a gun gain entry to the property?
  • What security measures, such as weapons screenings, surveillance cameras, and security personnel were in place to deter crime and protect patrons at the time of the shooting?

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 bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the families of Ashley Sanchez, Cristi Licano and Daniel Albo may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wrongful deaths. Additionally, Charlene Peak and Scott Mills may pursue legal claims for their injuries.

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 victims and their families retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
