Gunfire on Jane Usher Blvd. Leaves Two Men Injured in Separate Incidents

In the city, two persons were injured in separate, but related shootings this morning on Jane Usher Boulevard. Shamar Moore and Raheem Arnold were rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after gunmen opened fire on them. Moore and Arnold were reportedly in an altercation with their attackers earlier in the morning. Moments later, Arnold was shot by one of the men and within minutes, Moore, who was on his way to his grandmother’s house, was also targeted. Three expended shells were recovered from the area and police are looking for two persons in connection with this shooting.

    Police is always clueless!!! Why cant we just rely on our security services at least once.
    People try to get their own conviction at their own way due to failure of GOB and its departments.
