This case involves a child who was killed during an incident of auto theft in a gated rent-controlled apartment complex. The complex had two gates; one securing the vehicle entrance and one securing a separate pedestrian entrance in the back of the complex. The gates were manufactured so that residents could enter a passcode or use a key to unlock the gates. In the weeks before the burglary, however, both gates broke and could be accessed by anyone at any time. Resident began to notice non-residents examining the flaws in the system and complained to the building management numerous times. The management company replied and said they would fix the gates but this was never done. On the evening in question, a group of three non-resident men entered the pedestrian entrance of the complex around 10:30 pm and stole a car. There was an altercation as the burglars were driving out of the parking lot causing them to run over an 8-year-old child. Shortly after the incident, the property owners raised the rent and notified residents the increase would contribute to completely fixing the gates and to installing security cameras around the property. More than a year after the incident, the gates were still not fixed.
