Was This Dallas Motel Shooting Preventable?
A 31-year-old man was reportedly shot and injured inside his Dallas motel room Wednesday morning, April 26, 2017.
According to NBC DFW 5, the shooting occurred “in the 12600 block of Northwest Highway at 2:16 a.m.” The Dallas Morning News reports, the victim was “in his motel room at the Executive Inn when someone he knew fired a handgun through the window, striking him on the right side of the chest.” The victim was transported to the hospital with injuries.
The motel was apparently the subject of a prior criminal investigation in January 2017. The Dallas Morning News reports, suspects in that incident “are alleged to have bribed two motel employees to keep them from calling police after the men attacked another man in the lobby of the Executive Inn.”

Our Legal Take
Generally, property owners are required to protect all guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the property 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.
