ABC News has reported that a shooting occurred at the Tanger Outlets Phoenix located at 6800 N 95th Ave, Glendale, AZ 85305.
At approximately 2:40 p.m. on Wednesday, March 23, 2022, police responded to a shooting at the outlet mall. According to the police, an individual got into a fight with a group of young males he knew, and a shooting followed. Five victims were injured, including three with gunshot wounds. One of which was a little child.
Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan, an experienced gun crime lawyer, advises victims and their families in civil lawsuits involving violent crime. Kevin provided some valuable information concerning shooting victims during a recent conversation, including when a victim could sue for being shot at a mall.
"Mall owners, like other property owners, have a duty of care to ensure a reasonable level of protection for those who visit their properties. Mall owners should establish a secure safety strategy to ensure the safety of their shoppers and vendors. Security cameras, well-lit parking lots, and patrolling security officers are just a handful of good ways mall owners can reduce the danger of preventable crimes like shootings. However, if the mall owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured due to a shooting, the court may hold the mall owner liable."
"To prove the mall owner was negligent, a victim may need the help of an experienced gun crime attorney. The mall owner could be held accountable if the attorney could show that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if there had been past violent crimes in the area or on mall property, and the mall owner had failed to increase security, the incident could be considered predictable. The victims and their families may even be entitled to financial compensation for their damages in circumstances of negligence if the crime was foreseeable."
