“Michael Pook, thirty-one-year-old, was working as a security guard at a compound at the corner of Poinsettia and Tibruce Streets when he was approached by someone who fired shots in his direction. He was injured and taken to the KHMH where he is presently in a critical condition at this moment.”

“I know he and his two brothers came off murder last year. Is there any indication if this may have been related to the past allegation of murder against him?”


Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“Yes, that is one of the theories that we are following. We also have other information that we have received and we are following that likewise.”
