ROSWELL, Ga. - According to NorthFulton.com, a 20-year-old male was shot in a suburban apartment complex, north of Atlanta, on July 13, 2013.
The shooting took place in the breezeway of one of the buildings at the Orion Apartment complex on Hemingway Lane in Roswell, Ga. The victim took a bullet to the leg and lost a "tremendous amount of blood," said Officer Lisa Holland of the Roswell Police.
The Orion Apartment complex is a pool and tennis community that claims:
"We pledge to provide the finest personal services and facilities to our residents who will always enjoy the highest level of care and personal attention exceeding expectation in every way possible."
Police are still investigating the attack.
Many times when a shooting occurs at an apartment complex, the fact that there was even a shooting at all was a result of premises liability. The legal methodology behind premises liability holds owners and occupiers of property legally responsible for accidents and injuries that occur on that property.
There are industry-accepted standards for attributes like adequate lighting, supervision of the grounds, locking mechanisms for doors, and potentially other safety measures like security cameras, gating and other negligent security related issues.
Residents of Georgia have a right to expect to be kept safe when on the grounds of a business or organization. When someone is a victim of a violent crime and incurs injuries as a result of premises liability, many times the crime could have realistically been prevented if not for the negligence of the place of business.
