Kansas City, MO – December 23, 2018
Did negligent security contribute to this senseless Kansas City apartment shooting and are justice and compensation available to the victims?
Security measures are under scrutiny after two people were shot during an “attempted robbery…at the Silver City Apartments,” December 23, 2018, according to KCTV 5. Police responded to the complex in “the 1600 block of Birch Street” around 10:15 p.m. Two victims were transported to the hospital, one with “life-threatening injuries.”
The apartment complex was the location of a fatal stabbing investigation in September 2018, per FOX KC reports. The incidents raise grave questions over apartment security measures.
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 shooting may have been prevented.
- What additional security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and visible security patrols, were implemented by the complex owner following media reports of prior violence on property?
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, 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.
