“There was a shooting this morning at about five-thirty on Cemetery Road, in front of the homeless center. A male person by the name of Peter Sutherland had received a gunshot wound to the right shoulder. He was riding his bicycle en route from Cemetery Road toward Albert Street, when a male person came out and fired several shots in his direction.”



“And this has nothing to do with any of the other incidents?”
