One Detained for Boxing Day Shooting on Wagners’ Lane

Chester Williams

Another man was shot in the city. On Boxing Day, Byron Jeffords was on Wagner’s Lane when he was approached by two men on bikes and one of them shot him in the hand. Police have someone in custody and are investigating this matter. ACP Chester Williams tells us more:


ACP Chester Williams, Regional Commander, Eastern Division South

“On the twenty-sixth, Police receive information of shots being fired on Wagner’s Lane and they responded. Upon responding they were told, again, that the victim has been transported to the hospital. They later found out the victim to be one Byron Jeffords and he suffered gunshot wound to the hand. He is currently admitted to the hospital in a stable condition. I do not receive any information of the Police being shot at as you are saying. The information is that the suspects again are two male persons on separate bicycles and yes they were seen fleeing the area by the Police. The Police did pursue them but didn’t catch them. They managed to escape. We have one of those persons in custody as we speak.  And our investigation continues.”



“You expecting any charges to be laid against that person?”


ACP Chester Williams

“At this time it is too early to say; the investigation still ongoing.”
