Could the Tragic Loss of This Young Man Have Been Prevented?
Gunfire erupted during a party outside a Raleigh apartment complex Sunday, October 15, 2017, claiming the life of 20-year-old Lazarus Hohn.
According to WNCN News, the shooting occurred in an apartment “parking lot in the 6400 block of New Market Way,” shortly before 2:00 a.m. Family members apparently told WNCN Mr. Hohn was “at a paintball party” with “a large group of young adults” when someone pulled out “a real gun.” Tragically, Mr. Hohn succumbed to fatal injuries.
Police have allegedly since made an arrest, per WRAL reports.

Our Legal Take
Generally, property owners are required to protect all residents and guests legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Lazarus Hohn may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his wrongful death.
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.
