Security Guard shot on the way home

About six hours later, following the murder on Black Orchid Street, there was another shooting close to the Vernon Street home of a twenty- two year old security guard.  Estevan Fernandez Junior was walking home on Casuarina Street at twenty minutes to two on Saturday morning when he became victim number five for Friday night. He was almost home when he found himself struggling with a gunman near a shop less than a hundred yards from his house. News Five spoke to his mother who says she woke to the sounds of three gunshots.

Voice of: Bernadina Che, Mother of Estevan Fernandez Jr.

“Three shots I heard and I jump out of my bed. The shots sound so close. By Ricky shop, just over the lane. When I run by my window, I saw my son staggering to me. I said oh my god, it’s my son. So I ran down the stairs and come to meet my son and at the same time a guy is running to help him, the neighbor.  I meet my son by the gate. He said mother I got shot, I got shot. I said how? Who shot you? I don’t know. I don’t know the person. He couldn’t say nothing much and he walked in and collapsed by the step.”

“He didn’t recognize the shooter?”

Voice of: Bernadina Che

“He didn’t recognize the good looks of the shooter but he remembered the height. Dark complexioned I guess. He fight back with him. He wrestled with him.”

Jose Sanchez

“They guy told him what he was going to do, right?”

Voice of: Bernadina Che

“Well I asked him in the hospital while the doctors and nurses were taking care. I asked him, what happened? Did he fight with the person? If he get the looks. He said all I can recall is that he was at all person, taller than me; dark complexion man he point the gun, he passed front of the shop. I saw the person in a distance; I didn’t realize he will be a threat to me. I know I have nothing against no one so I continued to walk. While I already pass, the guy run in front of me and told me I am going to shoot you—now you gonna die. Then he point the gun at my head. Then I said you cant do this to me, I did nothing wrong and my son said that’s what he told the person.”

    SEND THE SHOOTERS TO ………THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION CENTER…..4 life

    They can grow food for school lunches, build desks and chairs for schools, clean the highways……etc.

    BUILD THE SUSTAINABLE REHABILITATION CENTER (Prison Farm) IN TOLEDO….

    BUILD IT TODAY……… FOR A BETTER TOMORROW

    mein if that is true. then the whole theory of shooting just because must be true. these guys are just thirsty for blood now.

    Rod, I think the victim is still alive & hope he stays that way. The Police cannot be everywhere but what happened to that curfew that was talked about last year. In most neighborhoods we know who should be in the streets after hours & our people have to take their own safety into their hands & report suspicious behavior. These thugs are not hiding, their “friends”: know who they are. There is nothing funny about a worthless friend even if his lack of conscience is directed at others.
