3 Persons Shot on Valentine’s Day

And then, in the early hours of Valentine’s Day, three persons were shot near the Renaissance Towers on Newtown Barracks. Just before 4:00am, nineteen year old Wilbert Welch was walking near the Renaissance Towers on Newtown Barracks. Police believe that he was the target of three men parked nearby in a white car. One of those men allegedly pulled out a gun and fired shots at Welch as he passed, hitting him on the left shoulder. Nineteen year old Devon Gillett and nineteen year old Chelsea Young were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, both walking behind Welch. Gillett was hit in the neck and left shoulder while Young was hit on her left hand. They were taken to the K.H.M.H. where all three are listed in a stable condition. Police say they have detained several persons for questioning.
