“Is there a reason why he fired those shots at that particular home?”


Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“Well, he didn’t mention any reason but we have established that there is an ongoing dispute in that neighbourhood among some of the people that live right in that vicinity and we believe that that was the motive there.”


Lambey was fined two thousand dollars and given until end of April to pay the fine and if he fails to do so, he will be sent to prison for two years.
