Monday’s shooting victim still in critical condition

Meanwhile, a man who was shot on Monday evening remains in critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Dwane Lopez of Supal Street was shot in the back at around six-twenty-five on Monday evening on the same street. But police do not believe that Lopez was the intended victim. Instead, they strongly suspect the intended target was a resident of Supal Street. Cops also believe the shooting was gang-related and in retaliation for the recent fatal shooting of Eddie Barrow who was slain on Rivero Street. This morning when News Five raised the issue of crime with Prime Minister Dean Barrow, he said police patrols on the streets will be doubled for the holidays.
