ASP Alejandro Cowo, NCIB

Acting upon information received CIB, Precinct 2, proceeded to the KHNH where they observed a male person by the name of Edgar Flores with an apparent gunshot wound to the right side of his jaw. He was being treated and up to this moment has been admitted in a critical condition at KHMH. What police have gathered so far is that he was inside of a yard on Jones Street. They were socializing when a male person from the roadside fired several shots in their direction which caused injury to Mr. Flores. There were a group of male persons known to Police so I cannot tell you who was the intended target there at that moment. But he was one of the persons along with a group of other persons that were there. One of those other persons may have been considered to be targets.

Flores was shot in the jaw and according to reports, when scenes of crime personnel arrived at the scene the family was uncooperative. Flores is listed as in a critical condition. Police had two persons detained for questioning but those persons have since been released.
