Lake Independence resident Kareem Smith escaped grave injury on Sunday, when he came under armed attack by someone who emerged from a vehicle on Mahogany Street.  Smith, who is no stranger to the law, told police that he was near Flamboyant Street when the incident happened.  An arrest has been made in that shooting.

“Kareem Smith was on Mahogany Street, somewhere in the vicinity of Flamboyant Street yesterday morning when a blue Volkswagen Jetta approached him.  One person exited the vehicle and opened fire on him.  Luckily, he was not hit but by the end of yesterday, Adrian Avaloy had been charged with aggravated assault in relation with this incident because he was detained by officers who were not too far from the scene.”
