Premise Liability Lawsuit hits Florida Apartment Owner
WEST PALM BEACH – A mother of a second teen who was found shot to death at Hampton Court Apartments in August 2014, has sued the owner of the Mangonia Park complex, claiming negligent security contributed to the triple murder that has not yet been solved.
In a lawsuit filed Friday in Palm Beach County Circuit Court, the mother of Se’Sawn “Shawn” Danford claims her 17-year-old son would be alive had Miami-based Singer Management, LLC and Hampton Court Partners, Ltd. hired guards, installed surveillance cameras and taken other steps to keep residents safe.
Like Tasha Eley, who in September filed a similar suit over the shooting death of her 17-year-old son, Martavious Brown, Sharon Moore is seeking an unspecified amount in damages from the companies.
Brown and Carley Chapman, 19, were found shot to death at the three-story complex, just east of the old jai-alai fronton off Australian Avenue. Danford, who had also been shot, died later at St. Mary’s Medical Center.
No one has been charged in connection with the murders.
