Did a security failure contribute to the shooting of a young child and two adults?
Gunfire erupted outside a Dallas gas station December 21, 2017, leaving three injured, including a 9-year-old child.
According to WFAA News, the shooting occurred at a gas station “in the 10000 block of Harry Hines Boulevard.” A man, woman and child were struck in the hail of gunfire. All three were transported to the hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries.” Their current conditions have not been released.
Police are apparently still searching for suspects, who fled in a “champagne or tan-colored Toyota Camry,” per DFW CBS reports.

Our Legal Take
Gas station patrons 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 shooting may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as bright lighting, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were in place 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 gas station owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victims may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their 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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
