Did a security failure contribute to this violent Antioch apartment robbery and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Crisp’s family?
Security measures are in question after 24-year-old Craig Crisp was shot and killed during an armed robbery at an Antioch apartment complex Saturday, August 11, 2018.
According to the Tennesseean, Mr. Crisp was “shot during a robbery at the Hickory Lake Apartments complex, which is off Haywood Lane near Interstate 24.” Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries.
Police told FOX 17 another armed robbery took place at the same complex less than a week before. In that incident, “two armed men approached a woman sitting in her car…and demanded she get out of her vehicle or they would kill her.”

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 on the property and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.
- What additional security measures, such as fencing, gated entry, surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner to protect Mr. Crisp, following media reports of a prior armed robbery on property?
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 or management company failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Craig Crisp may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims 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 victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
