Destiny Dennis, Jacksonville Gas Station Shooting

Destiny Dennis, Jacksonville Shooting (Action News JAX)

Did negligent security contribute to the senseless loss of this Little Rock mother and are justice and compensation available to Ms. Dennis’ family?

LOCAL NEWS

21-year-old Destiny Dennis was shot and killed during an apparent robbery at a Jacksonville gas station January 4, 2019.

Ms. Dennis’ mother told First Coast News,  her daughter was inside a car with her six-month-old child when “someone came to the car and was going to rob them.” Tragically, Ms. Dennis was fatally shot in the subsequent gunfire.

According to Action News JAX, Ms. Dennis “leaves behind nine brothers, and one sister, in addition to her daughter.” Her family is now searching for answers and justice.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

Gas station patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the gas station and whether this tragedy may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What security measures, such as bright lighting, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security personnel, were in place to deter crime and protect Ms. Dennis 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 gas station owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, Destiny Dennis’ family 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.

Eagle Hill Apartment Shooting: December 27, 2018

Did negligent security contribute to this unconscionable shooting and are justice and compensation available to the Lewis family?

Little Rock News

The Little Rock community is calling for justice following the deaths of 23-year-old Jamika Lewis and her 2-year-old son, Ja’Shun Watson, killed in an apartment shooting Thursday, December 27, 2018.

According to FOX 16, Ms. Lewis and her son were discovered with fatal injuries “in the parking lot of the Eagle Hill Apartments just of Baseline Road in Little Rock.” Ms. Lewis’ infant daughter “was found inside a car nearby unharmed.”

The Eagle Hill complex was the location of a prior fatal shooting investigation in February, 2018, per Arkansas Online reports. These tragedies raise grave questions over security measures on property.

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 tragedy may have been prevented.

  • What additional security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, monitored surveillance cameras, and visible security patrols, were implemented by the complex owner to deter crime and protect residents and guests 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 failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Jamika Lewis and Ja’Shun Watson may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wronful deaths.

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’ family retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
