We had a shooting on Saturday evening. Some time after 3pm police responded to two persons being injured as a result they proceeded to the KHMH, where they observed Mr. Steve Philly with several apparent gunshot wounds to the body and another person by the name of Tyrone Barcellona with an apparent gunshot wound to the upper shoulder. Mr. Barcelona was admitted and later on discharged himself from the KHMH and Mr. Philly is listed in a critical condition at this moment.
