Relatives of a convenience store clerk who was killed in the robbery of a store in Texas have filed suit against the owners of the store. The gunman was sentenced to life in prison. The 40-year-old employee, Abdul H. Meje, was killed in the 2008 robbery at a Citgo Store in Galveston. The gunman entered a guilty plea and agreed to spend the rest of his life in prison without the possibility of parole.
A wrongful death lawsuit was filed in a state court in Galveston County, Texas, alleging that, among other things, ABHI Enterprises was guilty of negligence. The employee was behind the checkout counter when he was shot. It’s alleged that the company failed to provide adequate security to ensure his safety and that the risk for a crime of violence occurring on the premises was reasonably foreseeable. The lawsuit seeks damages for pain and suffering, medical expenses and funeral and burial expenses. It also seeks compensation for mental anguish, loss of care, support and future inheritance.
