Could This Tragic Spartanburg Parking Lot Shooting Have Been Prevented?
A shooting outside a Spartanburg shopping center reportedly claimed the lives of 21-year-old Raymond Turner and 28-year-old Tyshann Smith Monday evening, August 7, 2017.
According to FOX Carolina, gunfire erupted in the parking lot of the “Bobby Biggerstaff Grocery on Farley Avenue,” around 7:15 p.m. Mr. Smith succumbed to fatal injuries at the scene. Mr. Turner and a third, unidentified victim were transported to the hospital, where Mr. Turner also succumbed to fatal injuries.
“We’ve have little tussles here and there but nothing to this magnitude,” the store owner told WSPA 7 News. “I feel bad for the families. My heart goes out to them.”

Our Legal Take
Generally, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the shopping center parking lot owner failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the families of Tyshann Smith and Raymond Turner may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for their wrongful deaths. Additionally, the third victim may 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 victims retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
