Could this senseless Titusville apartment shooting have been prevented?

Security measures are in question after a Titusville apartment shooting left one man hospitalized Thursday morning, May 17, 2018.

Gunfire broke out “at Emerald Place Apartments on Tree Lane, near Deleon Avenue,” shortly after 11 a.m. Titusville police told WESH 2 “shots rang out in broad daylight with dozens of people, including children, nearby.” A male victim was transported to the hospital in serious condition, per WFTV 9 reports.

The complex was apparently the subject of a prior shooting investigation in November 2015, per Orlando Sentinel 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 on the property and whether this shooting may have been prevented.

  • How did the gunman gain entry to the complex?
  • What additional security measures, such as gated-entry, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were implemented to protect residents and deter crime 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 or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his 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 victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
