HOUSTON – The family of Darius Dugas, an 11-year-old boy whose innocent life was lost due to gun violence, is suing the owners and property management team of the apartments where the deadly shooting occurred. The family, and multiple residents of the complex, said they complained numerous times about the suspect to the onsite office staff, but nothing was done. One of the concerns was voiced just a few hours before the child was killed.

Darius, affectionately called “DJ” by his loved ones, was a bright child known for his beautiful smile. On Feb. 3, he was allegedly shot by a man known to “wreak havoc” in the complex, according to documents.

The case was filed on Feb. 10 against The Vireo Apartments LP, which owns the property “The Vireo Apartments” located at 12212 Tidwell Road. The apartments were managed by Kittle Property Group, Inc.

According to the lawsuit filed in the courts, little DJ and his family had just returned home from an outing and was looking forward to snuggling and drinking hot chocolate that evening. Inclement weather was expected and the boy realized he had left his coat in the car. As he walked downstairs from their third-floor unit to grab it, bullets rang out, and a witness testified hearing the boy yell out “Mama” twice.
