Mass Shooting at Mall Leaves 3 Dead, 2 Injured

The New York Times has reported that a mass shooting occurred in the food court of the Greenwood Park Mall located at 1251 U.S. Hwy 31 N, Greenwood, IN 46142. 

At approximately 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 17, 2022, 20-year-old Jonathan Douglas Sapirman opened fire in the mall food court. Armed with over 100 rounds of ammunition, a rifle, and a pistol, he fatally shot three and wounded two. Sapirman's shooting spree was cut short when an armed bystander shot and killed him. 

An investigation is still underway but police determined that the gunman entered the mall around 5 p.m. and hung out inside the bathroom near the food court for approximately an hour. An additional rifle was found in the bathroom, along with a cell phone believed to have been placed inside the toilet.

Justice For Victims of Mass Shootings

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is an experienced gun violence attorney in Indiana. During a recent interview, Jeff explained some of the legal rights available for victims of mass shootings and their families.

"The scourge of mass shootings in America has wrecked hundreds of communities, claimed thousands of lives, and left countless others with injuries and suffering. These horrific events, which have happened in places like churches, elementary schools, shopping centers, and workplaces, are especially heartbreaking. These are all places where people should feel protected and not have to worry about gun violence."

"However, violent crimes such as mass shootings are often able to occur due to the negligence of a third party. Malls and shopping complexes are required by law to keep their facilities, including their parking lots, safe for customers. The security measures necessary to make their premises secure will depend on a variety of things. Basic security measures often include security cameras, patrolling security personnel, and ample lighting."

"The victims of mass shootings can learn more about their legal right to pursue a lawsuit for compensation by consulting with an experienced gun violence attorney. An experienced lawyer can help to identify any parties that might be held accountable for the shooting."
