Police Probe 86th Homicide


The homicide count increased by one yesterday following a brazen daylight shooting in an Over-the-Hill community.

Shortly before 4:00 p.m Tuesday, detectives scrambled to Dunmore Street off Hospital.

“Upon arrival, we saw evidence that led us to believe that someone was shot. The male was taken to the Princess Margaret Hospital with chest wounds,” Superintendent Tommy LaRoda explained.

“At this time, we are still in the first stage of investigations, but we are looking into the matter.”

The victim, whose identity has not yet been released, died in hospital only a short time later.

He is the country’s 86th homicide victim

This latest slaying comes only days after a Montell Heights resident was gunned down.

Twenty-three-year-old Keith Armbrister was standing in front of a Bowe Avenue home around 12:30 a.m. Sunday when several people pulled up in a car and someone opened fire.

Armbrister also died in hospital.

Police have not yet charged anyone in connection with this incident.
