Asheboro, NC – January 27, 2019
Did negligent security contribute to this senseless Asheboro sports bar shooting and are justice and compensation available to Robin Pierre Moore?
Security measures are in question after 43-year-old Robin Pierre Moore was shot and injured at an Asheboro sports bar Sunday morning, January 27, 2019.
According to The Courier-Tribune, “officers responded to a reported assault in the parking lot of Freewayz Sports Bar & Lounge, located at 1512 Zoo Parkway, Asheboro.” The news report indicates that a victim of the incident “Robin Pierre Moore, 43, is said to be in stable condition at an unnamed hospital.”
Police told FOX 8, “multiple fights in the parking lot” escalated into gunfire. Mr. Moore was transported to the hospital with a “gunshot wound to the chest.”
OUR LEGAL TAKE
Bar and nightclub 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 lounge and whether this shooting may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
- What parking lot security measures, such as bright lighting, visible surveillance cameras, and security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Moore 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 bar owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Robin Pierre Moore may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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 victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
