A fourth victim was also shot.”  According to the report, the victims have been identified as “Shirley Jean Jones, 62, Steven Tinch, 26, and Johntavier Moss, 24.”  

Media reports indicate that a suspect has been arrested and charged.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex 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:

  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect Shirley Jean Jones, Steven Tinch, Johntavier Moss and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • Was the complex aware of any disturbances or suspicious activity prior to the shooting?
  • How was the suspect able to gain access to the complex?

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 apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the families of Shirley Jean Jones, Steven Tinch, and Johntavier Moss may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for their loss. In addition, any other victim 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 families of Shirley Jean Jones, Steven Tinch, and Johntavier Moss and any other injured victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Greenville, South Carolina mobile home park early Sunday morning, June 9, 2019, leaving one man injured.  According to WSPA.com, “[o]fficers responded to a call in reference to a gunshot victim at the Dixie Estates Mobile Home Park on Holder Lane at about 2 a.m.”  FoxCarolina.com reports, “deputies found an adult male who was shot at least once. EMS transported him to a local hospital with what deputies call serious injuries.”  According to the media reports, K9 units were used to track the suspects, but were unsuccessful.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of mobile home parks have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the mobile home park 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 the property, and were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious activity 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 mobile home park owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for his 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 victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect their interests.
