New Mexico Jury Awards $12M Against Condo Association For Shooting Death

The family of a man killed in an Albuquerque, N.M.-area housing complex by a stray bullet that went through his door has won a $12 million judgment against a condominium association and a property management firm.

KRQE-TV reported that a jury in state District Court in Santa Fe awarded the judgment to the family of 31-year-old Andrae Davis on Tuesday.

Police don’t know who fired the shot that fatally wounded Davis in 2011 at the complex.

His family’s suit contended that Eagle’s Nest Condominium Association and Roger Cox & Associates Property Management were responsible because they should have done a better job screening tenants and dealing with previous reports of trouble at the complex.
