G.S.U. Versus G.S.G. Showdown Leaves Many Injured

It spread like wildfire on Thursday night during news time that officers attached to the Gang Suppression Unit had opened fire on George Street residents. While it has since been confirmed that the officers used non-lethal rubber bullets, the residents are crying foul even though the unit is claiming that they opened fire to overwhelm three men who were reportedly hurling missiles at an unmarked vehicle they were traveling in.  The bloody shirts and the injuries sustained by the men to various parts of their bodies show that they were hit by bullets fired by the officers.

 

Voice of: Troy Tillett, Shooting Victim

“Wah Four-Runner haul up pan George Street hard; brakes up, turn, dehn noh know how dehn wah go, reverse up back. Everybody run off the lane thinking dah gunman. One person stone the vehicle; the vehicle take off up the street, come back and when they come back, they just start buss shot, lone shot. They run ina di yard, take we out of the yard, shot we up pan the ground, kick up we. Gone ina di yard, beat up my bredda ina ih house, shot he up, crank gun ina fi he head, everything.”

“So when the vehicle passed the first time, you all didn’t know that police were inside or anything?”

 

Voice of: Troy Tillett

“No cause the vehicle unmark and it tinted dark; the windshield whole ah it deh down dark…everything dark, dark.”
