Fatal Shooting Inside of a Costco in Corona, CA

CNN reports that on Friday evening there was a fatal shooting inside of the Costco located on 480 North McKinley Street, Corona, California. An argument between the gunman and the victims is what caused the shooting. The relationship between the gunman and the victims is unknown, but police believe the incident was not a domestic dispute.

When officers arrived at the scene one person was dead and two were injured from the gunshots. There has been no further information released about the condition of the victims or the alleged gunman.

Other patrons of the store claim that they were injured trying to escape the building. Police were told that the emergency doors would not open, which caused crowds of people to pile up. The malfunction caused chaos and commotion.

Could Store Owners Be Liable for Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Shooting victim lawyer Bobby Thompson specializes in store shootings and represents victims in civil lawsuits.

“It is crucial to understand that all commercial property owners have a legal duty to maintain a safe environment on their premises. Store owners are responsible for protecting their patrons and employees from preventable violent crimes. In order to protect their patrons from any reasonably foreseeable dangers, property owners must provide adequate security based on previous violent crimes that have occurred in the store or in the surrounding area”, stated Mr. Thompson.

“If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs due to the negligent security, the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit. The shooting may only be considered reasonably foreseeable if the property, or its surrounding area, has had prior incidents of violent crime and insufficient security measures were in place”, Mr. Thompson explained.
