Did a security failure contribute to this tragic loss and are justice and compensation available to the Mr. Malcolm’s family?

Local News

22-year-old JoColby Malcolm was shot and killed outside the “Morningside Apartments at 2401 Jammes Road” Sunday, September 2, 2018, according to Action News JAX.

Police told The Florida Times-Union, “[a]nother homicide occurred at the complex on Feb. 22, 2017, when it was Nova Eagle apartments.” That incident claimed the life of 24-year-old Roshaun O’Neil Hayles.

The two tragedies raise questions over security measures at the complex.

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.

  • What additional security measures, such as fencing, gated entry, surveillance cameras, bright lighting, and security patrols, were implemented by the apartment complex owner following media reports of prior gun 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 company failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of JoColby Malcolm 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 victim’s family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
