Could the tragic death of Davon Gross have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to his family?
Gas station security measures are in question after a shooting at “the [gas station] on Pond Springs” tragically claimed the life of 18-year-old Davon Gross Wednesday evening, June 28, 2018, according to CBS Austin reports.
Austin police told KXAN Mr. Gross may have been a victim of mistaken identity. The young man was apparently dropping friends off at the gas station when a gunman opened fire through his car window. Police have since made an arrest.

Our Legal Take
Gas station 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 violence on property? What security measures, such as clear windows, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and off-duty police patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Gross 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 gas station owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Davon Gross may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims his wrongful death.
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.
