Police Look for Shooters of Joseph Ducey, Who Shot Back

Joseph Myvett

There were a total of five shooting incidents over the weekend in which three persons were killed and three others remain in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The fifth shooting was a brazen attempt on the life of Haitian national Joseph Ducey on Sunday morning. As Ducey stood inside his yard on Police Street, he was targeted by two gunmen. Although being hit multiple times, the fifty-one-year-old took out his licensed gun and fired at his attacker, who fled the scene. While police were brief in its report today, ACP Myvett simply says investigation continues.

He then returned fire with his licensed firearm and both persons then made good their escape.”


Ducey remains hospitalized.
