  1. It’s unfortunate this whole thing happened. Hopefully lessons will be learnt from this, and deter other offenders.

    The populace must feel safe when we travel the streets or when we are in the comfort of our homes.

    We must think of the consequences of our actions.

  2. Why was Francis found “guilty of wounding Wynter with intent to murder” if it was a stray bullet?? Can some legal expert help me understand this please thanks.

  3. you don’t need an expert it’s common sense u take up a gun and start shooting inot a crowded area YOUR INTENTION IS TO MURDER, KILL, TAKE LIVES. POINT BLANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and FYI there was a very likely chance of her dying from her injuries hence the WOUNDING WITH INTENT TO COMMIT MURDER charge
