A Roaring Creek resident remains in a stable condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital recovering from a gunshot wound to the head. Thirty-seven-year-old Mervin Young was shot just above the eye on Sunday night around ten o’clock as he was in a vehicle, dropping off a relative in the Hattieville area of Roaring Creek Village. Young was caught in the crossfire between persons in the area. Police say that while he was not the intended target, they have not been able to establish a motive for the gunfire.
