Did negligent security contribute to the tragic loss of this young man and are justice and compensation available to Javon Sherwood’s family?

Local News

Security measures are in question after 22-year-old Javon Daniel Alim Sherwood was shot and killed “at the Belle Haven Apartment Homes on Autumn Lake Court” Saturday evening, December 1, 2018, according to WSOC-TV 9.

The tragedy comes amid a recent spike in “violent crimes in the University City area,” WSOC-TV 9 reports,  including a November apartment complex parking lot shooting.

Police are still searching for suspects and a motive, leaving neighbors shaken, per WBTV 3 reports.

 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 at the apartment complex and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • How did the shooter(s) gain entry to the complex?
  • What additional security measures, such as gated and guarded entry, fencing, bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner following media reports of prior violence in the surrounding area?

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 failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Javon Sherwood’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.
