Over the weekend 24-year-old Devon Arnold was a victim of gun violence after he was shot on Central American Boulevard Friday night. The young man was at Tommy’s Store at around 8 pm along with 42-year-old Wayne Pratt when two gunmen approached them and fired several shots.

Over the weekend 24-year-old Devon Arnold was a victim of gun violence after he was shot on Central American Boulevard Friday night. The young man was at Tommy’s Store at around 8 pm along with 42-year-old Wayne Pratt when two gunmen approached them and fired several shots. Devon Arnold succumbed to his injuries while Wayne Pratt was left hospitalized at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. According to Arnold’s sister, Crystal Morris, he was not the intended target and believe the suspect is the same that killed Rafael Usher.

Sister:  “Meant a lot to us because he was my brother, my mom’s second son. All of us loved him, they took away my brother for nothing. My brother didn’t do anyone anything, he did no wrong, my brother got caught up in something that he did not belong in. They took my brother away from us for nothing. “

Reporter: When you say he got caught up in something he didn’t belong in what do you mean by that ?

Sister: “He didn’t belong in whatever they were out there with. They killed my cousin five months ago, the same person just came back and keep on haunting our family for nothing.”

Reporter: What is the police telling the family at this time?

Sister:  “Police ? The police haven’t come to see my mom as yet. They haven’t come to see my mom as yet so we can’t say what they are saying. They haven’t come to see my mom as yet but my sister said that they had gone over there but I haven’t really talked to my sister for them to tell me what all they said.”

Reporter: What did Mr.Devon Arnold use to do for a living?

Sister:  “Well he didn’t have a job at the moment but any little job that anybody has he goes and works. He liked working because he liked having his things that he needed so he worked. He just turned 24 the 24th of December. “

Reporter: Any kids ?

Sister: “No kids, that is what hurt my mom because my mom didn’t have a grandchild to say that this is for Devon. That is what hurt my mom the most. They hurt all of us, my mom has eight of us and now one is missing out of the eight we are only left with seven. They chanced my brother for nothing. This is how I am seeing they are taking it, it’s like if you can’t catch Harry you will catch his shirt. How will you come and kill a man that has done you no wrong? But God is not sleeping. God is not sleeping. He is not sleeping.”

According to Police, two persons have been detained following the investigation. They also believe that the shooting incident can be linked to another one that occurred on the Central Boulevard last year.
