Plaisance youth killed by suspected gang member.
The 22year old young man was shot and killed last night by a man with whom he had an ongoing Feud last night. That incident occurred just a few yards away from his home.
His uncle Raphael Hamilton told reporters that the shooting incident stemmed from a problem over a young lady the suspect shared a child with.
According to a release from the Police Public relations department, Hamilton’s sister was at home when she heard an explosion. She looked outside and saw her brother Michael running after the suspect with blood streaming down his left leg. As Michael got closer to the suspect, he turned around and shot him to his chest and made good his escape.
He uncle told the media that the suspect shot his nephew twice in this foot and chest. He said the suspect is part of a gang that would normally roam the community at nights.
The man has since gone into hiding. Investigations are continuing by the police into the matter.
