According to police reports, shortly after 6 p.m. a 17-year-old male was walking on Johnson Road, Fox Hill with another male when two males in a gray coloured vehicle approached and shot at them before speeding off.

The victim, who was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, later died while his mother watched him take his last breath, according to a close family relative.

The other male victim was not injured in the incident.

Former Member of Parliament for Fox Hill and Progressive Liberal Party Senator Fred Mitchell in a video, circulated on Whatsapp, stated that something must be done to curb crime in the area.
