Street Figure, Roger Anthony, denies knowledge of rivalry with George Street

As we said, on Sunday night, a pair of gunmen stormed a graduation party at the Brown Sugar Mall and indiscriminately let loose a volley of shots at a number of unsuspecting guests.  While most were able to scramble to safety, five persons, including Kirk Smith Junior were injured.  Smith Junior was shot in the head and back.  It is unclear what may have led to the near-fatal shooting.  What we do know is that the party was attended by Roger Anthony. This afternoon, Anthony spoke off-camera with News Five and gave a brief account of what transpired.
