According to The Bronx News 12, a man was shot and killed at the Triangle Deli located at 286 Ashburton Ave, Yonkers, NY 10701.
In late October of 2020, police responded to a shooting outside of the Yonkers deli where allegedly a teen from Delaware shot a man. The victim was transported to the hospital, where he died from the gunshot wound.
An investigation has led to a suspect who is being charged with murder. The suspect has not been identified, possibly due to his age, but they do suspect the incident is gang-related.
Attorney contributor Laurence Banville has represented violent crime victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Below Laurence provides his insight on the legal rights of victims shot outside of a restaurant.
"To ensure the safety of customers and patrons on and around the property of a restaurant, property owners should provide adequate security measures. An example of such security could include surveillance cameras and proper lighting, both inside and outside of the building. If there are not adequate security measures put in place, the property owner could be found negligent in a court of law.”
"Victims of violent crimes along with their families should enlist the services of an experienced violent crime lawyer. There may be a case of negligence on behalf of the restaurant owner if a victim’s lawyer can prove the crime was foreseeable. One example of a foreseeable crime would include if a property owner was aware of previous criminal activity within the area but failed to increase the security on the property. In these cases of neglect, a victim and their family could receive compensation for damages.”
