Clarksville News

Gunfire erupted at a Clarksville, Tennessee restaurant Wednesday evening, June 5, 2019, leaving two people dead. According to NewsChannel5.com, “[p]olice found the victims in the parking lot of the Longhorn Steakhouse on Wilma Rudolph Boulevard around 8:30 p.m.”  Both victims were taken to the hospital where they later succumbed to their injuries according to the report. Fox17.com is reporting, “[p]olice say the shooting followed a dispute of some sort.”

The incident remains under investigation.

Our Legal Take

Restaurant and patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises they are visiting. The level of security provided in the subject parking lot is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the parking lot operator aware of the dispute prior to the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the parking lot owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its visitors, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victims retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

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 shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property?
  • If any prior incidents of violence did occur, did the property owner make any security changes?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Fields and others 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 apartment complex owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Latarica Stripling 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 family of Latarica Stripling retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
