Shooting on Fabers Road

There were two shootings in the old capital in less than twenty-four hours, but luckily, none turned out fatal.  The first, the more serious of the two, happened on Mahogany Street on Wednesday night and the other happened shortly after ten this morning between the Sister Clara Mohamed Primary School and Excelsior High School on Fabers Road.  News Five’s Marion Ali was at the scene and filed this report.

The street was cordoned off with police yellow tape as officers marked and recorded thirteen expended slugs that were fired into a crowd that were at a tacos cart to purchase food on Wednesday night.  Cherry Mae Howard told News Five that she was in the area shortly after the incident and didn’t even know it was her son that got shot.

When I went there he told me that he just mi di buy tacos and the bwai just walk up behind dehn and start to fire shot.”

The perpetrator, who police are still looking for, fired indiscriminately at someone at the tacos cart and Middleton was hit in both legs.

“Well nothing yet quite sure because we just left from there cause my mother couldn’t take it no more.”

While Middleton’s sister is thrown by the shooting of her brother, their mother is thankful that her son was not mortally wounded.  Marion Ali for News Five.
