Local 10 has reported that a shooting occurred inside the Town Center at Boca Raton located at 6000 Glades Rd, Boca Raton, FL 33431.
Police responded to a shooting at the mall on Wednesday, April 6, 2022. They found a victim with a gunshot wound to the leg. They were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment but are expected to be alright. Police reported that two suspects have been taken into custody but have not disclosed their identities at this time.
Attorney contributor Michael Haggard, an experienced gun crime attorney, represents victims and their families in legal lawsuits. Michael gave some valuable information concerning victims shot inside a mall during a recent discussion, including if the mall can be held accountable for the shooting.
"Mall owners have a legal obligation to offer a reasonable level of protection for those who visit their establishment. Mall owners should implement a secure safety strategy to protect their consumers and vendors. Security cameras, well-lit parking lots, and patrolling security officers are just a few ways mall owners can minimize preventable crimes like shootings. However, if the mall owner fails to provide adequate protection and someone is injured, the court may hold the mall owner liable."
"Victims may need the help of an experienced attorney in order to prove the mall's accountability. The attorney will try to show that the offense was reasonably foreseeable. If violent crimes had previously occurred on the mall property, but the mall owner did not increase its security, the incident could be considered foreseeable. Victims may even be entitled to monetary compensation."
