ST. LOUIS – The parents and brother of a man who was shot and killed at a North Broadway, St. Louis gas station alleges the station's owners failed to provide reasonable security.
Evangelone Rackley, Daron Rackley and Darion Rackley filed a complaint on Aug. 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against ExxonMobil Environmental Services Co., et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Aug. 26, 2017, Daron Rackley, Darion Rackley and Darius Rackley, deceased, were invitees at defendants' business premises when they were approached, chased and shot at by unknown assailants. The suit states Daron Rackley and Darion Rackley suffered injuries and Darius Rackley was injured and later died.
The plaintiffs hold ExxonMobil Environmental Services Co., et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide reasonable security for the premises, did not timely call the police to report the loitering in the parking lot and did not timely remove the assailants.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek aggravated damages of more than $25,000, plus costs and all other relief that are just and proper. They are represented by James D. O'Leary of O'Leary, Shelton, Corrigan, Peterson, Dalton & Quillin LLC in St. Louis.
