Deadly Shooting Across From HS Leaves 1 Student Dead, 4 Injured

According to CBS Baltimore, a shooting occurred in the parking lot of the Edmondson Village Shopping Center located at 4408 Edmondson Ave, Baltimore, MD 21229. 

Police received reports of gunfire at approximately 11 a.m. Wednesday January 4, 2023. They arrived at the Edmondson Village Shopping Center to find five high school students with varying degrees of gunshot wounds in the parking lot. Four of the teens suffered non-life-threatening injuries but a 16 year old died at the hospital. 

Police do not have a description of the shooting suspects but believe the high school students were hanging out in front of the Ritas and Popeyes when they were shot. The two suspects then took off before police arrived.

Who Is Liable for Shopping Mall Parking Lot Shootings?

Attorney contributor for Legal Herald Aaron Blank has assisted shooting victims and their families in obtaining justice by filing civil lawsuits in Maryland. He recently shared when a shopping center can be held responsible for parking lot shootings.

"Shopping center and mall owners have a moral obligation to protect their customers from preventable violence. Ensuring security precautions are implemented can help fulfill this responsibility. Aside from hiring security guards to patrol the area, the parking lot and property should have ample lighting and surveillance cameras. If a shooting occurs because the property owner failed to provide proper security, they could be held liable in a lawsuit."

"If a shooting takes place in a parking lot of a shopping center known to be high in crime, the owner could be deemed negligent if they failed to improve security on the property. The crime would need to be shown to have been caused by negligent security. An experienced shooting victim lawyer can help victims explore their legal rights fully. Financial compensation may be awarded to the victims of shootings or their families."
