1 Man Injured in Lizarraga Avenue Shooting

Joseph Myvett

Earlier in the newscast we told you about Adam Joseph who was shot on Halloween night. He lived for four days following that shooting, but died over the weekend. That same night another man was shot less than an hour before Joseph. Fortunately for him, he survived that gun attack. ACP Joseph Myvett tells us more about shooting of Maliek Acosta.


ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch

“Some time shortly after eight p.m., police were called to an area on Lizarraga Avenue where upon arrival, they met and spoke with one Maliek Acosta, twenty-one years, who reported to them that whilst in the company of others at a house on Lizarraga Avenue, a male person entered the yard and fired shots towards their direction, one of which caught him on his leg. He is in a stable condition. Police are investigating this matter. At this point in time, we don’t have anyone detained in relation to the investigation, but we are following several information as well. I cannot say at this point in time whether he was the target as they were others there.”

“Any idea if it was gang related?”


ACP Joseph Myvett

“At this point, we are looking at several information, however, we will not be able to determine whether or not at this point in time if that was the case.”
