2 Men Shot in Ladyville

Emmerito Reyes & Patrick Canelo

A shooting in Ladyville, also on Sunday, has left two persons hospitalized in a serious, but stable condition.  Police say they have no idea what motivated the shooting that targeted nineteen-year-old Patrick Canelo and his friend forty-five-year-old Emmerito Reyes sometime around nine p.m.  The two men were socializing on Flamboyant Street in Ladyville when the incident happened. ASP Alejandro Cowo shares the details.

“It happened just before nine o’clock. Police visited the Karl Huesner Memorial Hospital; forty-five-years-old Emmeterio Reyes had an apparent graze to the right side of the foot and then Mister Patrick Canelo with several apparent gunshot wounds to the body. What police have gathered so far is that both of them were walking in front of number thirty-seven Flamboyant Street which is located in the new site area when a male person came out from a nearby area and just fired shots at them causing the above-mentioned injuries. Mister Canelo is still admitted at the hospital in a critical condition.”
