Gunshots rang out near the southern end of Central American Boulevard shortly after 5:00 this evening, and when the shooting was over, two men had to be rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Ward for treatment.
Reports are sketchy at this time, but Amandala has learned that the two shooting victims are Alfernie Romero, 18, and Troy Hyde, 26.
The two friends were socializing in a yard when two gunmen rode up on bicycles and opened fire, hitting both men multiple times.
Romero was hit in his back, leg and hand. The bullet in his back is said to be lodged in an area of his spine. Hyde, street sources say, was shot twice in the head.
Amandala will have more on this story in our midweek edition.
