The weekend went without any murders being recorded.  Unfortunately, it does not mean that there were not instances of violence unleashed on the streets.  There were multiple shooting incidents as well a stabbing and a chopping scenario.  We take you back to Friday night at about seven thirty when two persons who were in a dark green Hyundai sedan were shot.  29-year-old, Jerdy Flores was shot to the right arm and 21-year-old, Renita Jackson was shot to the right knee.  The duo were in the Water Supply Area of Punta Gorda Town when the incident happened.  Reports are that the two were headed to Cayo Street when upon reaching its junction, they were approached by a gunman on bicycle who fired the shots.  Love News understands that eight expended shells were found at the scene.  Flores and Jackson were taken to the Punta Gorda Hospital and then transferred to the Southern Regional Hospital in Dangriga.
