“The initial information that police have is that Mr. Leslie was on Neal’s Pen Road talking to some female inside of a vehicle when they were approached by two male persons riding a motorcycle.  They came from the direction of Central American Boulevard going up towards Neal’s Pen Road.  The motorcycle stopped at a distance behind the vehicle and from there the passenger came off of the motorcycle and fired two single shots in the direction of Mr. Leslie, causing the injuries to him.”
