2 shot on Levy Slusher Street

After a few days of relative peace on the streets, there was a mid afternoon shooting in the city which landed two men to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Cecil Hinds, Moises Delfin and a third person were at a wooden house on Levy Slusher Street in the Jane Usher Boulevard area when a lone gunman pounced on them. Hinds, was the first to be targeted and shot to the right shoulder and hand. The gunman then turned to Delfin who was inside the house. He was shot to the face and hand. But a third person, Hinds’ brother, who was under the elevated house woke up staring down the barrel of the gun. The gun snapped and Hinds and his brother ran into the nearby swamp evading the attacker who fled the scene. News Five was first on scene and spoke to one of the victims, who wished not to appear on camera. He told us of the frightening experience.

    No apparent justification for these attempted murders, so if I were the judge they’d get sentenced the same as for murder. It’s only just. Can’t reward him for being a poor shot.
