  1. How long did it take the Police and Anbulance reach on the scene? See the time difference 9:40 he was shot and 11:55 the Doctor checked the body. What does that tell you?

    • By the time the police and ambulance reach he was already dead and a dr has to pronounce a person dead b4 the body can leave the scene

  2. That the district doctor took 15 minutes to arrived? That has nothing to do with the Police or Ambulance. Why you trying stir up unnecessary trouble? Were you there to see how long these entities took to arrive?

  3. The news article stated that ” It was reported that around 9:40 pm on Wednesday 25th August, the deceased was sitting….”

    The deceased could not be sitting. The dead knows nothing and can do nothing.

  4. Why are black young men always sitting at corners, being unproductive? Others ethnic groups live here in large numbers, but I don’t see the Chinese or whites or Syrians with this same behaviour. Why? Aren’t there children to put to bed? Plans to be discussed for upliftment? What about covid and curfew and such. Where is the family structure? And I am sure that the killer is NOT from another ethnic group. Do black lives only matter when it involves white people? When will be learn as a people?

  5. What,,,Humans don’t die in sitting positions?
    The NOW deceased,,,,was SITTING,,, playing dominos when he was shot.
    He died ,,,,still sitting,,,, slumped forward,, cash in his hand,,,as though taking a nap.
    His final nap.

  6. The journalist/reporter who wrote the article should have his/her work checked before publishing. I’ll even lay blame at the feet of the publisher. Instead of the word deceased it should have been victim.
