HOUSTON – An alleged shooting at a Baytown apartment complex earlier this year which left a local man paralyzed is the subject of a state district lawsuit.
Harris County District Court records show that Garrett Norwood filed the suit against 2016 Baytown Ward Road LLC and Eureka Multifamily Group. L.P. on Sept. 13 in the 269th District Court in response to the Jan. 20 incident.
In the original petition, Norwood explains that he went to the Watermark at Baytown Apartments located at 2700 Ward Rd. to visit his girlfriend when two assailants shot him “five times in the chest, back, and leg” as he was exiting his vehicle.
The suspects did not reside at the Watermark, the suit says.
Norwood adds that one of the bullets struck and damaged his spinal cord, rendering him a paraplegic from the chest down.
He asserts lax security at the complex led the attack.
Consequently, the complainant seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
He is represented by the law firm Fernelius Simon PLLC in Houston.
