(FOX 13)

Could the tragic loss of this young man have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to Mr. Falkner’s family?

Local News

27-year-old Atha Falkner was shot “in the parking lot of a Marathon Gas station in Victoria, Mississippi” Sunday, December 9, 2018, according to FOX 13. Mr. Falkner was apparently “walking from the car to the front of the store when he was shot multiple times.” Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene.

Family members told WREG they are seeking justice and answers. As police continue to search for suspects, gas station security measures are under scrutiny.

 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 at the gas station and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as clear windows, monitored surveillance cameras and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Falkner 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, Atha Falkner’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for 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.
