Second Shooting Victim One Block from Darien Banks Murder, One Hour Later

One hour after Darien Banks was gunned down, there was a second shooting incident only a block away from the murder scene.  According to Police, forty-three year old Kenrick Walton was socializing with two male persons in a yard on Vernon Street when a gunman approached him and fired shots in his direction. Walton was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital with a gunshot injury to the head. One relative we spoke with off camera told us that Walton’s shooter was drinking and talking with the group prior to the incident. The relative contended that while Walton is from the area, he has no gang affiliations.

“The man tell me that he know the bally and he neva expect nothing ah it, because the bally walk side ah he and the talk with he. All of a sudden, he just hear a bang. When he hear the bang he grab fih he head because lotta blood the pour. Then, when he conscience like he the faint or something like that. But, then he say he nuh remember what happen until deh start fix up ah. But, the man alright. The man nuh wah dead. Like I tell yo, the man seh deh graze ah, but dah like a deep graze, but ih neva penetrate eena ih skull.”
