1 Person Dead in Tyler House Apartment Shooting in Washington, D.C.

Fatal Shooting Inside Tyler House Associates Apartment Complex

The Washington Post reported that a man was fatally shot inside a Tyler House apartment, located in the 1200 block of North Capitol Street NW. It was early Thursday morning when police found a man dead with a bullet wound in his head.

No further information about the incident has been released.

Prior History of Violence in the Area

This fatal shooting was certainly not the first violent crime to take place in the area surrounding Tyler House. In January of this year a young man who recently graduated high school was shot dead outside of the Tyler House Associate apartment complex.

Additionally, in 2013 The Washington Post wrote about a drive-by shooting outside of the Tyler House that left 13 people injured. One of the victims was left in critical condition. There was no information released about the motive of this shooting.

Legal Options For Apartment Shooting Victims

Attorney Laurence Banville at CrimeVictim.Attorney has experience in working with apartment shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits.

“The owners of bars, nightclubs, apartment complexes and other commercial properties have a legal duty to ensure that their patrons and employees are safe from preventable violent crimes. If a shooting happens due to negligent security, the property owner may be held liable in a lawsuit”, stated Mr. Banville.

“For an apartment complex owner to be considered negligent, the shooting must have been reasonably foreseeable and must have occurred because of the inadequate security. This may be the case if the property or the surrounding area has had a prior history of violent crime, and no security improvements were made”, explained Mr. Banville.
