“I was inside of my house watching TV and I hear the gun shots gone off.  I hear one of the ringer do like that weh catch it, but I did n’t come out to see nothing until lee while after that, I deceide fuh see, well, this paat ah dih window, then I see the police dem out here and the whole crowd deh and ting, and seh mos e sonting mos e happen, but I didn’t know that vlcsnap-2014-01-08-09h02m11s99e haad bore.   But I was not on the verandah, that was the paat that got shot”.

Because she had already locked up and was afraid to come out she did not see who was doing the shooting or whom they shot at. But she is concerned for her life, as she has reason to believe no one in the area would target her home and family.
