Man shot inside home sues his gated community
A resident in a gated community in Nashville who was shot in his home has sued his homeowners association and property management.
The Four Maples condominium complex in the Donelson area has a gate that requires residents to swipe a pass or remotely unlock it for visitors. But Marquette Weaver said in a lawsuit filed in Davidson County Circuit Court that the gate meant to keep non-residents out was not working in June and had been broken for a month prior. Thatís when people broke into his home at 2 a.m. and shot him several times, Weaver said, and heís seeking $750,000 in damages, saying the home invaders couldnít have gotten near his Coursey Drive home.
Weaverís attorney, James Harris, said Weaverís health is now good, and he has no comment beyond the complaint. Betty Flinkow, property manager with the Westwood Management Corporation that manages the condo complex, said she hadnít seen the lawsuit and has no comment.
According to Metro police, no arrests have been made in Weaver's shooting.
