Alrick August Fights for Life at K.H.M.H.

Alrick August

Shooting victim, twenty-three-year-old Alrick August remains in a critical condition, clinging to life inside the Intensive Care Unit at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.  On Wednesday night, August was shot eight times to the chest, neck and arm on Western Avenue as he headed home from a friend’s house around nine o’clock. It is not known why the gunman made an attempt on his life, but the family remains hopeful that the Transparent BPO employee will recover, even though his prognosis remains the same. Late this evening, News Five spoke with Shian Pennill, the girlfriend of August, who says that Thursday’s blood donor appeal was a success.

“After the appeal I must have to say a big thank you to Transparent BPO. The employees from there are really generous and they have been coming in donating blood for him. Right now he is in the same condition as he was and we are just hoping that he gets better.”

“Are the doctors saying anything?”

 

Shian Pennill

“Well basically we haven’t really discussed that; until tomorrow morning, we will have more details about that.”

“Has there been any cooperation from the police? Has the police come forward and spoken to the family as to what they believe as to a motive as to what happened?”

 

Shian Pennill

“Not yet, not yet.”

 

Duane Moody

“So the family is still blind as to who could have made this attempt on Alrick’s life?”

 

Shian Pennill

“Yes, we are as in the dark as the public.”

“Now I know the last time you said that it can possibly be that it was by association; that that is the reason why he was shot. Does the family maintain this?”

 

Shian Pennill

“Yes, the family maintains the position, yet we don’t know who it is as yet. But you know, we are not focusing on that at this time. We are just focusing on recovery for Alrick.”
