Argument at Trestletree Village Apartments Leads to Shots Fired in Atlanta, Georgia
Fox 5 reports that on Wednesday, April 6, 2022, at around 3:30 a.m., a 31-year-old man was visiting a friend at Trestletree Village Apartments located in Southeast Atlanta, Georgia. Trestletree Apartments is a gated community on the 800 block of Eloise Court. Unfortunately, Trestletree Village Apartments is not a stranger to shootings.
At some point, an argument escalated into gunfire. The injured man was found inside an apartment unit with a gunshot wound to the upper body. An investigation by the Atlanta Police Department is pending.
Who Can Be Held Responsible For Violence At Apartment Complexes?
Legal contributor Attorney Brian Mickelsen, an experienced crime victim lawyer, represents crime victims and gunshot victims injured or killed in shootings, stabbings, and assaults at apartment complexes and commercial properties.
“One of the first things to consider is the general appearance of the property. The “broken window theory” is a criminological theory that states that visible signs of crime, broken windows, and overall disrepair create an environment for crime to flourish. If the gate is inoperable, if the lights do not work, if there is trash strewn about, or if there are unknown persons loitering outside – these signs can all be indicative of a crime-stricken property.”
“Moreover, where there is a long history of violent acts at an apartment complex, the landowner and property management company have a duty to protect the residents and their guests from future criminal attacks. Guests and residents should expect to be safe on the property.”
