Lauderhill Chevron Robbed at Gunpoint
On Tuesday, around 2:15 a.m. two men robbed a Chevron gas station on 5585 N. University Drive at gunpoint. One man aimed the gun at the store clerk and demanded money, while the other man took alcohol. The men are reported to have previously entered the gas station and later returned to rob it. After robbing the gas station, the assailants fled the scene in an older-model station wagon with tinted windows.

From a civil standpoint, the robbers may not be the only liable party. If the Chevron failed to offer proper security then it may be civilly liable. This is because a property owner is responsible for any harm that comes to its employees and customers while on their premises. If said harm was foreseeable and the Chevron failed to take any actions to prevent it, then they are civilly liable for the injuries of the victim. The Chevron owes a reasonable duty of care, which can be fulfilled by making sure the entry to the establishment and the usage of the establishment is safe. As a result, the Chevron may be liable if the unfortunate circumstances that took place resulted in injures on its premises.
