Dangerous Nightclub? Inadequate Security? 25-Year-Old Joseph Johnson and 39-Year-Old Roberius Thorton Were Shot and Killed Outside Nightclub in Hartwell, Georgia

Posted By Danny Dalton | September 6 2022 | Negligent Security

Shots rang out outside a nightclub in Hartwell, Georgia, known as Jack’s Bar and Grill on Anderson Highway. According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI), two victims sustained life-threatening injuries, and another victim was treated and has since been released. Tragically, 25-year-old Joseph Johnson of Cannon, Georgia, was shot and killed. He died at AnMed Health on Monday. 39-year-old Roberius Thorton was also killed in the shooting.

Senseless gun violence continues to rise in Georgia. Nightclubs and Shopping Centers are hot spots for violence, and because bullets have no names, innocent bystanders are injured or killed.

What Can Businesses Do to Combat the Violence?

Legal contributor Attorney Brian Mickelsen, an experienced wrongful death lawyer, has represented many families of those killed or injured by the actions or negligence of others. Mr. Mickelsen offered the following commentary on Georgia’s growing violence:

“Businesses play an important part in addressing Georgia’s gun violence problem. Far too often, business owners allow crime, loitering, vandalism, and drug activity to happen on their property without addressing it. What appears to be a non-violent crime, in a matter of seconds, can turn deadly. This is precisely why businesses should maintain open lines of communication with local law enforcement. Request the crime stats. Stay informed about what happens on your property. Trespass loiters and dangerous persons. Maintain adequate lighting. Clean up the graffiti. Install cameras that actually work. And hire a security guard where necessary.”
