One Dead After Being Shot in Walmart Parking Lot

According to Springfield News-Leader, a man died after being shot outside of a Walmart Neighborhood Market located at 1320 S Glenstone Ave, Springfield, MO 65804. 

On Wednesday, July 14, 2021, a man was fatally shot in the parking lot outside the South Glenstone Walmart Neighborhood Market entrance. Police claimed a white van pulled up just outside the entrance, and another man approached the van. An argument ensued leading up to the point that the driver, whose identity has not been released, allegedly shot the victim. The victim succumbed to his injury and died at the scene. 

The van driver complied with the police's request for an interview and was booked into jail under suspicion of second-degree murder. However, the suspect has not been formally charged, and the investigation is still ongoing.

Legal Options For Victims of Shootings on Commercial Property

Attorney contributor Ryan Frazier has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Ryan, an experienced violent crimes lawyer, has provided his insight on the rights of victims shot on commercial property.

"Commercial property owners have a legal duty to keep their customers and employees safe while on their property. To ensure this safety, property owners should provide adequate security measures, which may include hiring security guards, installing security cameras inside the building and in the parking lot, and maintaining properly lit parking lots. If someone is injured on their property and sufficient security measures were not in place, the victim and their family may have grounds for a lawsuit. At this point, they should seek the counsel of an experienced violent crimes lawyer."

"In addition to inadequate security, the victim’s lawyer must be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable if crime rates in the area increased and the owner did not increase security measures. In turn, victims may be eligible for compensation if a violent crimes lawyer can demonstrate that the violent act happened due to neglect in security."
