A young man was reportedly shot and killed in the Spring Valley Apartment Homes parking lot Saturday morning, August 22, 2015.
According to 11 Alive News, an argument in the Spring Valley Apartment Homes parking lot, off Candler Road, erupted in gunfire around 10:30am. It is unclear whether the assailant was attempting to rob the victim when the shooting began. However, one witness apparently told media “the men were arguing over a backpack.” The male victim, described by witnesses as a “young guy…18 or 19 or 20,” succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene.
Police have not yet identified a suspect, once again leaving residents concerned for their safety. The apartment complex was reportedly the scene of an arson in June, which injured two people and displaced five families.

Choosing the Right Attorney
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:
A 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.
