Easter Monday Shooting Out West

Following that shooting, there was another in Roaring Creek. Just after seven-thirty Monday morning Malcolm Hyde, Clifford Hyde Jr, and another man were standing in front of Hyde’s Meat Shop in the village when an assailant in dark clothing appeared. The man reportedly fired several shots at the three men from the inside of a taxi. However, in this case, none of the three men were hit. Head of the N.C.I.B., A.C.P. Joseph Myvett shared more details.

ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Yesterday morning sometime around 7:10 A.M police responded to a shooting scene at a residence in Roaring Creek where we were told that two persons were hanging out on the street side when they were approached by a lone gunman who fired several shots towards their direction however no one was injured during the incident.”

Reporter: Either of those two people at the previous gathering ? 

ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “I am not able to say that at this point in time I would have to confirm that.”

Reporter: Are they connected to the Hyde family in any way at all ?

ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Yes.”

Reporter: Relatives or? 

ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Yes relatives.”

Reporter: Do you believe that the murder perhaps resulted in that shooting ?

ACP Joseph Myvette, Head of National Crimes Investigation Branch: “Could have been, that is one of the theories that we are looking at at this point in time.”
