Could the shooting death of Andrew Lemon Jackson at a Miami-Dade nightclub have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Jackson’s family?

Local News

Gunfire rang out at a Miami-Dade, Florida nightclub early Saturday morning, March 16, 2019, leaving one man dead.  According to MiamiHerald.com, “[a] man was shot to death Saturday morning after a dispute inside a Northwest Miami-Dade strip club spilled into the parking lot and escalated to a gunfight.”  Local10.com reports “the shooting happened around 1 a.m. outside Club Lexx in the 12000 block of Northwest 27th Avenue.”  The news story reports “a group of men got into argument inside the club, causing security guards to escort them from the building. The argument continued in the parking lot and turned physical. Multiple people drew weapons and fired at each other.”  According to Local10.com, “[o]ne [of] the shots struck 26-year-old Andrew Lemon Jackson, killing him.”

The suspects left the scene and have not been identified according to the media outlets.

Our Legal Take

Nightclub 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 prior incidents of violence been reported on or near the property?
  • Were there security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras, security personnel, and security patrol in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Jackson and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Does the nightclub have a protocol to check guests for deadly weapons prior to entering the establishment?
  • Were police called prior to the incident escalating to gunfire?

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 property owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on the premises, Mr. Jackson’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 Mr. Jackson’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Montreal Jordan McMullins Killed in a Cherokee County Night Club Shooting

Montreal Jordan McMullins Killed in a Cherokee County Night Club Shooting (FOXCarolina)

Cherokee County, S.C. – January 19, 2019

Did negligent security contribute to this senseless Cherokee County shooting and the death of Montreal Jordan McMullins and are justice and compensation available to the victim’s family?

LOCAL NEWS

Security measures are under scrutiny after a 23-year-old man was shot and killed at a Cherokee County Night Club early Saturday morning, January 19, 2019.

According to WSPA 7 News, “The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting happened at about 3:30 a.m. at the Sugar Shack Nightclub on Wilcox Avenue near Gaffney.”  

FOXCarolina reports, “Several people and vehicles were struck by gunfire.”  Montreal Jordan McMullins passed away as a result of the shooting. The surviving victims were transported to area hospitals. Their identities and current conditions have not been released.

The night club has apparently had prior visits from law enforcement.  FOXCarolina states the “CCSO will announce further plans and release information on efforts to shut down the Sugar Shack in the coming weeks.” In a press release obtained by FOXCarolina, the Sheriff’s office says: 

“Law enforcement has had meetings with those running the club providing them with proactive safety measures they could take to reduce violence. They followed the recommendations for a period of time but have reverted back to not having armed security on the premises and have failed miserably in protecting patrons of their establishment both inside the nightclub and outside the club.”

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Night club 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 night club and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

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, Montreal Jordan McMullins’ family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, the surviving victims of this shooting 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 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.
