Did a security failure contribute to the senseless loss of this Houston boy and are justice and compensation available to Bryan Escalante’s family?
Security measures are in question after 15-year-old Bryan Escalante was shot and killed outside a Houston apartment complex Wednesday evening, August 15, 2018.
According to ABC 13, gunfire erupted at “[an] Apartment complex in the 4600 block of Sherwood around 7:45 p.m.” The Houston Chronicle reports, Bryan Escalante was shot “during an apparent robbery” in the complex parking lot. Tragically, the young man succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene.

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.
- How did the assailants gain entry to the complex? What security measures, such as gated entry, surveillance cameras, bright lighting, fencing, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Mr. Escalante 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 apartment complex owner or management company failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Bryan Escalante may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
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.
