Local News

Security measures are under scrutiny after an Indianapolis apartment shooting claimed the life of 25-year-old Ferrell Odom and left another man injured Wednesday night, October 17, 2018.

According to FOX 59, gunfire erupted at the “Scarborough Lake Apartments” in the “6400 block of Maidstone Rd.” shortly after 6:00 p.m. Both victims were transported to the hospital, where Mr. Odom tragically succumbed to fatal injuries. The condition and identity of the second victim have not been released.

Police told CBS 4, investigators “do not have a suspect in custody or motive at this time.”

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.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Ferrell Odom 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 property owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Ferrell Odom’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, the surviving victim may 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’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
