Could This Houston Parking Lot Shooting Have Been Prevented?
A shooting outside a Houston convenience store reportedly claimed the life of an innocent bystander and left another injured Sunday morning, July 2, 2017.
According to KHOU News, gunfire erupted during an argument “in a parking lot on Buffalo Speeedway at West Fuqua,” around 12:30 a.m. The Houston Chronicle reports, a “bystander was shot in the chest and later died at the hospital.” A second victim was apparently transported to Memorial Hermann with a gunshot wound to the leg. His current condition has not been released.

Our Legal Take
Generally, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the convenience store or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim’s family may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death. Additionally, the other victim of this unconscionable shooting 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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
