On Wednesday, July 8th, a shooting occurred in the parking lot outside of the Ross Dress For Less store located on 4646 S Cooper St, Arlington, TX 76017.
A witness claims the victims were having an argument with a man on a motorcycle prior to the shooting.
The victims were hospitalized and are expected to recover from their injuries. Police were able to find the suspect in the same parking lot and were able to hold him in custody.
Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan will discuss legal options available to shooting victims and their families.
Commercial property owners must maintain a safe space for their patrons and employees. In order to do so, property owners must provide adequate security. If a violent crime occurs on a property with inadequate security, then the owner may be held liable for the crime.
The crime must also be deemed reasonably foreseeable in order for a victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a history of violent crime yet the owner did not improve security measures.
