(CMR) Minutes before 10:00 p.m. residents in the Prospect area have stated that they heard shots being fired.
CMR sources have now stated that one person is dead and was discovered by a lady “at the top of the Prospect Drive.” Other sources clarified he was on a bicycle walking a woman home. A vehicle allegedly drove by and shot him. Another resident in the area informed CMR that:
“I heard it clear as day. Counted them too a whole 6 round.”
That person also stated they heard a car speed across Marina Drive. The police and helicopter were dispatched quickly to the scene.
CMR has also heard the name of the deceased but we are obviously NOT in a position to confirm his identification at this time.
