Update on Shooting Death of Brian Harris

Brian Harris

Police say that the death of Brian Harris is now being investigated as a murder. As we reported almost two weeks ago, Harris passed away after being in and out of the hospital for gunshot injuries. Today, police told the media that a post-mortem conducted shows that Harris died as result of the gunshot injuries he sustained in December of last year.  But up to this time, cops are no closer to solving this homicide.


Supt. Alejandro Cowo, O.C., C.I.B., Eastern Division

“Reference the death of Brian Harris, a post-mortem was conducted on the body and after the conclusion the doctor certified that the cause of death was because of the gun-shot injuries he received. Hattieville Police are still investigating that matter.”

“No perpetrators identified as yet?”


Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“We know that from the initial stage, Mr. Harris was interviewed while he was alive and he couldn’t describe who his attackers were. So, as a result we can’t definitely say if it was one person or more than one person shot at him that night.”



“So, the investigation is a bit challenged because of that?”


Supt. Alejandro Cowo

“Yes. The area where it occurred was lonely and it was late in the night. We have to remember that he was found until the following morning by a passer-by in the area.”
