A nineteen-year-old resident of Arlington Drive is lucky to have survived an attempt on his life on Friday night after coming under gunfire while talking to a friend a short distance from his home.  Thomas Ferguson was shot twice while he stood on Arlington Drive by someone who wanted him dead.  The nineteen-year-old was injured in the stomach and back during the attack.

“On Friday, October 5th, 2018, just after ten p.m., police visited the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where they observed Mr. Thomas Ferguson, nineteen-years-old of Arlington Drive suffering from two apparent gunshot wounds, one to the stomach and one to the back.  What police gathered so far is that Mr. Ferguson was at a yard on Arlington Drive talking to a friend when they were suddenly approached by someone who entered into the yard and the male person approached him, had a small discussion with him and thereafter pulled out a firearm and fired several shots at him and the other person who was along with him… He was at a neighbor’s yard.”
