Twenty three year old Nigel Augustine is in a stable condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after being shot last night. It happened at around 11:30 on Magazine Road. Police say that one man lurked up on Augustine and blasted the near fatal shots at him. Today, Officer Commanding Eastern Division South, Senior Superintendent of Police, Chester Williams, gave us an update.
“He received gunshot wounds to the abdomen, the left shoulder and the back. He was taken to the KHMH where he was admitted in a stable condition.”
“What is the investigation showing so far as to the motive behind this shooting?”
“At this time we do not have a motive but we are looking for one person who we believe will be able to assist in the investigation as it relates to that particular incident.”
“Now, Mr. Augustine is known to police as maybe affiliated with any gangs or has run ins with the police for something?”
“As is customary from me whenever a person is the victim of a crime I do not believe in disclosing their past or their affiliations because I do not think that their affiliations should be brought out just because they have become the victim of a crime. So, I will not go into discussing his affiliations at this time.”
