Could this senseless loss of life have been prevented?

Gunfire reportedly erupted outside a central Las Vegas apartment complex Friday night, April 20, 2018, claiming the life of Mark Anthony Salazar.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, the fatal shooting occurred in an alley outside the “San Tropez Apartments, near Twain Avenue and Swenson Street,” shortly before 9:30 p.m. Detectives allegedly used surveillance footage to “unravel misinformation” provided by the property manager. Police have since made an arrest, per Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The San Tropez apartment complex was apparently the subject of a homicide investigation in August 2017, per News 3 reports.

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.

  • Media reports indicate the property manager allegedly provided “misinformation” to police. What employee screening measures and background checks were in place at the time of her hire? 
  • Police reportedly used surveillance footage in their investigation. Who was monitoring these cameras 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 apartment owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the family of Mark Anthony Salazar 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.
