Gunfire erupted at a Greensboro, North Carolina apartment complex Friday night, July 12, 2019, leaving one man injured.  According to MyFox8.com, “around 9:33 p.m., police responded to the Willow Ridge Apartments at 2025 Willow Ridge Road in reference to an aggravated assault.”  Officers arrived and found a male victim with a gunshot wound.  According to the report, the victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation is ongoing, no suspects have been identified.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Residents and guests of apartment complexes have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided at the apartment complex is of significance, and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether this shooting may have been prevented.  The following questions are also important in assessing whether this incident may have been avoided:

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on the property, and, if so, were any security measures added after any prior incidents?
  • What security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim and others at the time of the shooting?
  • Was the complex aware of any suspicious activity or suspicious people on property prior to the shooting?

Property owners are generally required to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone and everyone legally on the premises.  Should the investigation into this incident reveal facts that establish that the apartment complex owner or management lacked adequate security to protect its residents and visitors, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims and substantial compensation for his injuries.

The Murray Law Firm has extensive and successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, and suggests that an immediate, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed so as to limit evidence from being altered, damaged or destroyed.  The complexities of pursuing a negligent security case are well understood by the legal team at The Murray Law Firm, and it is imperative that the victim retain a capable law firm who will work without delay to protect his interests.

LOCAL NEWS

Gunfire erupted at a Greensboro, North Carolina apartment complex Monday, March 25, 2019, tragically leaving a young man dead and a family waiting for justice. According to MyFox8.com, “[Alphonso] Darwin, a 34-year-old, was found shot on March 25 at the Brannon Apartment complex on Mizell Road, where he lived. Police believe he was being robbed before being shot.”  The shooter has not been found and the family still waits for justice, nearly two months after Mr. Darwin was shot and killed.  According to the news story, the weeks and months after [Mr. Darwin’s] death has been a fog for the family, ” one with sleepless nights and emotionless days, because they know his killer is still on the loose.”

Police continue to look for the suspect.

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 security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect Alphonso Darwin at the time of the shooting?
  • How were the suspects able to gain access on to the property?
  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near the 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 family of Alphonso Darwin 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 family of Alphonso Darwin retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
