Kendis Flowers

Well-known street figure Kendis Flowers appeared in court today where he was arraigned for the attempted murder of two police officers. According to police, Flowers fired as many as five shots at two Police Constables in the early hours of Sunday morning. The officers had to seek cover and escaped uninjured. The incident happened on Sunday, but it wasn’t until today Flowers was charged and appeared in court. Police said that it took a few days to charge Flowers because they wanted to ensure that they were thorough in their investigation considering two of their officers were involved.  They interviewed persons in the area to make sure that they had a full account of what happened and gathered sufficient information to bring charges.
