Gungulung resident shot in the chest

Tarique Gillette, 17, of the CET Site area of Gungulung in Lake Independence, is presently fighting for his life at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after he was shot in the right side of his chest by one of two men at about 3:00 o’clock yesterday afternoon at the corner of an unnamed street that intersects with Holy Emmanuel Street in the Gungulung area of the city.

Police reports are that Gillette and three other men were standing at the corner of the unnamed street, talking, when two men rode up on separate bicycles and one of them pulled out a gun and shot Gillette.

Police took Gillette to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where he was admitted in a critical condition.

Police launched an investigation into the attempted murder of Gillette, which led to the detention of two men who they say should be able to help them in their investigation.
