A Shooting in Lord’s Bank Leaves Teenager Injured

Edward Broaster

Ladyville police are also investigating a shooting on Friday night in the Lord’s Bank Community. Seventeen-year-old Michael Aldana alleges that while driving a green Range Rover on the Lord’s Bank Road, he was shot to the knee and arm. But is there more to that story? That’s what we asked ACP Edward Broaster.


ACP Edward Broaster, Regional Commander, Rural Eastern Division

“There was a shooting on the first of July, around ten-thirty where one Michael Aldana was seen at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the left side of his arm and left knee. He’s claiming that he was driving on Lord’s Bank road when he heard a single gunshot and felt a burning sensation and didn’t realize that he was shot until he arrived at a friend’s residence. We are looking at this matter and investigating it thoroughly. And the vehicle in which the individual is claiming he was in, we have not yet gotten that vehicle to do inspections. So we are looking at that.”

“Did he say anything as to his life being threatened or anything like that sir? Why would anyone take aim at him?”


ACP Edward Broaster

“Like I said, the story at this time for us, we have to investigate the story at this time completely. That is what he said and we are dealing with the investigation part of it.”


Duane Moody

“Sir because from this story, he is saying that he only heard one gunshot, but he was hit twice—one to the arm and to the knee—so it doesn’t add up.”


ACP Edward Broaster

“Thank you.”
