Body Found After Alleged Shooting at Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham in North Dallas

According to NBC DFW5, around 4:15 a.m. on Saturday, January 11, 2020, officers were dispatched to the Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham located at 7880 Alpha Road. A man, who was later identified as 28-year-old Corey Crosby, was found with gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Witnesses stated that one male was allegedly seen fleeing the hotel in a white vehicle. 31-year-old Frederick Cortez Walker was charged for the murder after police traced a 911 call the night of the shooting to his cell phone and a witness identified him as the shooter in a photo lineup.

Walker was being held at Smith County Jail with his bail set at over $110,000.

Legal Recourse for Victims and Their Families of Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent works with victims of violent crimes. Below he has outlined some important information from his years of experience for families and victims to have.

“Consequently, after deadly shootings and other violent crimes are committed, the victims and their families endure long-term suffering. Whether the victim survives or not, the toll on finances is a burdensome one. Generally families carry the weight of the expenses that come with either death of a loved one or medical bills of survivors.

Finding the person responsible for the crime and a possible third-party can be successful with an educated civil attorney. Property owners (third-party) are held responsible for any crime such as, a shooting, that took place on the premises, if it can be proven that the property owner had prior knowledge of escalated criminal activity and failed to provide adequate security.

A violent crime has the power to alter lives in an instant and being prepared to file a private suit on behalf of the victim may be able to provide relief. Checks will need to be completed for statute of limitations laws and other various state laws to secure the appropriate restitution. Often times, the criminal justice courts will not properly provide restitution that is fair for the victims or their families,” Mr. Kent explains.

“Depending on an attorney to help these families and victims through these tough times is how our experienced attorneys help,” empathizes Kent.
