Alejandro Cowo

A shooting that occurred three hours earlier is believed to have triggered the murder of Eugene Wallace. It happened on Rio Grande Crescent in proximity of the Wallace murder scene and started the gun violence on Wednesday. A fifteen-year-old minor was injured as he exited his house after the gunman called out his name. Emory Williams remains hospitalized at the K.H.M.H. and police suspect that the gun violence is drug related.

“At about five-thirty, again police visited the K.H.M.H. where they observed Emory Williams, fifteen years old with a gunshot wound to the body. What police gathered so far is that at about five-thirty, Williams was inside his residence when someone was calling out. He came out to see who it was and when he came out to the verandah, a male person was out there who pulled out a firearm and fired several shots in his direction, which caused the injuries to him. At this moment, police is looking for one male person who can assist with the investigation. Mister Williams is still admitted in a stable condition at the hospital. We suspect that it is somewhat of drug related that led to this shooting incident. Again it is involving the two groups in that area.”
