HOUSTON — Three Harris County residents are suing Fort Bend Private Security Services, alleging negligence after an apartment security guard fired a gun at the plaintiffs.
Darren Allen, Marquez Jones and Retta Allen filed a complaint on Sept. 29 in the Harris County District Court against the defendants, alleging that Fort Bend negligently hired, trained and supervised defendant Alberto Shible.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Sept. 9, 2016, Retta Allen, who suffers from congestive heart failure, experienced rapid heart rate and chest pain and was hospitalized after she heard the gunshot. The plaintiffs also suffered mental anguish and medical expenses, the complaint said. The plaintiffs hold Fort Bend and Shible responsible because he allegedly committed an intentional tort while in the course and scope of his employment with Fort Bend when he fired a shot at defendants Darren Allen and Jones.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek monetary relief of more than $200,000 but not more than $1 million and other relief deemed appropriate. They are represented by Christopher D. Wilsher of Christopher D. Wilsher Attorney at Law in Houston.
