Paralyzed from shooting, Anthony “King” Major relives incident

The violence was not confined to San Pedro, in the city a man who is no stranger to the courts, was violently shot on Friday night. In June of 2009, Anthony Major a.k.a. King of Pinks Alley, was arrested during a botched robbery attempt at Tong’s Supermarket. During that incident, his partner in crime Richard Flores, the primary suspect who allegedly threw a grenade in front of the K.H.M.H. during the 2008 Carnival parade, was shot and killed by the store’s owner.  Now Major was gunned down while walking through an alley that intersects with Hyde’s Lane.  Major was shot in his chest but somehow he survived.  With a bible in his hand and a tear in his eye, he told News Five that the injury has paralyzed him.

Jose Sanchez

“Did you recognize any of the two guys?”

Anthony Major

“No sir.”

Jose Sanchez

“Maybe an old beef is responsible for it (shooting)?”

Anthony Major

“No sir.”

Jose Sanchez

“At this point what have the doctors tell you regarding your injuries?”

Anthony Major

“The spinal cord damaged. Cause the two legs to paralyze from the bullet wound. The bullet enter my chest, exit the back but it damaged the spine. So it paralyzes the two foot. That’s what d doctor told me. After when the swelling from the spine go down.”

Jose Sanchez

“Mr. Major what do you do for a living?”

“I’m a laborer.”

Jose Sanchez

“This will hamper your ability to earn an income right?”

Anthony Major

“Big-time. Bigtime. This will slow me down.”

“You have any family? Kids, wife?”

Anthony Major

“Yes sir. That’s my mother right out here. My sisters, niece, nephews, daughter, they really mess me up right here.”

“This is going to be a big change in life for you. Are you emotionally prepared to being in a wheel chair?”

“Well, with the help of the father, brother. I’ll pray to jah for me to get back on my two feet and walk again.”

Jose Sanchez

“Has anyone tried to attack you before?”

Anthony Major

“I’ve had a little misunderstanding before.  We’ll leave that part like that.”

“I know it’s difficult but with your family, I know you will find a way through this.”

Anthony Major

“Yes sir.  With the help from the father, I’m gonna hang in there and see what is going to be the result.”

Jose Sanchez

I see you are reading the New Testament. You’ve been reading some proverbs and psalms?

Anthony Major

“Yes Sir, Psalms. Number one in the bible that I like to read. That’s what I read but I am getting tired.”

When he leaves the hospital, King is likely to be confined to a wheel chair.

    it is funny how people act after being visited closely by death. this guy now bed ridden seems to turn to the bible when he could have done it when he had the health and ability to walk around his neighbour hood with it helping his brothers to turn to God. Now he triesto give what is left to God. God forgives anyone anytime but we shouldn’t wait when we’re in desperate times of our lives to turn to him. We should give God what we can when we’re healthy also not when bedridden and the wrath of our wrong doings has reach us to turn to the bible. mein, youths your wasting precious life that God gave, so please stop being thuggs and try better your lives instead of terrorising the community. i hope and pray that he really appreciates the second chance that the Lord almighty has given him and that he really changes his life.

    Could it be that the victim of these crimes are now hiring criminals in order to get some type of justice since the legal system has failed to do so?

    at “sabuskii”….please think before you make a comment. God would never turn his back on his people no matter what. A wheelchair doesn’t stop someone from serving God or spreading his word. Don’t get me wrong……I am in no way, shape, or form agreeing to his present/past behavior.
