Dog Handler Shot In Alleyway

[bitsontherun V56Hr491]

This evening Police investigators appear stumped over the murder last evening of 23 year old dog handler Sherwain Fiedcou of East Ruimveldt. The young man was shot by a lone gunman just before 9 last evening in this North Ruimveldt alleyway as he was about to tend to two dogs. He had left home moments before with one of his dogs and in the company of someone known to him. That person has been assisting the police with the investigations. Reports are that the young man was shot while walking through this area. There was apparently no argument or any altercation, residents in the area just heard the gunshot and the injured man tried to run for help but collapsed. He later died while under surgery at the Georgetown hospital. Family members and friends are devastated over the death and are trying to figure out a reason behind the killing. At his East Ruimveldt home a small black flag was nailed to the house and their was a somber mood all over. Even the beloved dog that was with him at the time of the attack appeared to be in mourning.
The young man’s mother still can’t believe her son is gone. Fighting back tears she recalled receiving a phone call about the shooting and rushing to the hospital.

She remembered him as a quiet person who kept to himself but loved dogs and would train and tend to pit-bulls and other dogs for various owners. She said she doesn’t know of him having a problem with anyone and friends say even if he did, they would not have known since he kept to himself most of the time. His sisters were too distraught to talk to us but his mom wants to know how she’ll be able to move on without her Sherwain.

When capitol news visited the scene of the crime this morning, many of the nearby residents were tightlipped. Police investigators were spotted on the scene speaking to persons in the area about the latest shooting death in the city.
