Man shot twice, assailants escape

A twenty-eight year-old Banak Street man clings to life at the K.H.M.H. after he was shot twice over the weekend. Ellis Meighan told police that he was riding his bicycle on Cemetery Road around 9:40 p.m. on Friday. On approaching First Choice Pharmacy two men on foot asked him what he was doing in the neighbourhood; without giving Meighan a chance to reply one of them pulled a handgun and shot him in the chest and abdomen. When Meighan ran to Magazine Road holding his chest he was quickly taken to the hospital by a good Samaritan. The two suspects, one of whom he has identified as “Gambis”, rode off with Meighan’s bicycle. Police are looking for the two suspects.
