Could the unconscionable shooting of this Memphis boy have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the young victim?

Local News

Security measures are in question after a 15-year-old boy was shot outside of the “Hickory Forest apartments” Thursday morning, October 4, 2018, according to WREG 3.  A man reportedly opened fire on a “group of teens” in the complex parking lot. The young victim fled to a Burger King with a “gunshot wound to the arm.”

The complex was apparently the location of a shooting and home invasion in July, per WREG 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 unconscionable shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as gated-entry, bright lighting, fencing, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect the victims 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 property owner or management failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the young victim may seek justice and elect to 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 victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.

Memphis apartment owners have a responsibility to protect their residents from violent crime, sexual assault, and foreseeable harm. Unfortunately, owners all too often fail to implement and/or maintain critical security measures, leaving residents and their guests vulnerable.

On August 21, WREG 3 reports, “gunfire erupted at…Apartments off Alcy, injuring six people including a pregnant woman.” Tenants reportedly told media the “apartment complex is plagued with violence.”

The subject complex was apparently listed as one of the “top 19 apartments for crime” in July 2017, according to WMC Action News 5 reports, with an alleged 71 calls to Memphis police over a 90 day period.  “Apartments on Kingsgate Drive topped the list with 141 calls” over the same period.

Could this unconscionable sexual assault have been prevented and is justice available to the young victim?

Elsa Velasquez bravely fought off an alleged child predator at a Memphis apartment complex Thursday evening, June 7, 2018, rescuing her 3-year-old daughter. In a community all too often silenced through fear, Ms. Velasquez spoke out to protect her child and other families.

According to News 3, the 3-year-old victim was playing with her cousin in the apartment complex courtyard when a man “grabbed her by the hand and pulled her across the parking lot to a wooded area.”

Ms. Velasquez was able to find the suspect and pull him off her daughter by the hair. After he fled, WVLT 8 reports, she courageously tracked him down and reported him to police, so he couldn’t harm any other children.

    (Spotcrime.com May 2018 Crime Map)

    Recent crime reports from Spotcrime.com reveal a staggering number of assaults in the surrounding area. Was the apartment complex owner aware of local criminal activity? If so, what additional security precautions, such as gated-entry, surveillance cameras and security patrols, were implemented to deter crime and protect residents? 

  • Media reports indicate the victim could not find help inside her own apartment complex and had to run a mile to call 911. Where was apartment staff and security during this critical time? Did the delayed response cause any further harm to the victim or her unborn child?

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 failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries and any harm to her unborn child.
