The recent gang feud between George Street and Supal Street has led to the murder of 21 year-old Ryan Arnold and the shooting of a 15 year-old who now has a bullet lodged in his right leg.

 At around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25, a group of 5 men were socializing on Armadillo Street when a gunman rode up on bicycle and fired gunshots at the group. When they realized what was happening, everyone tried to take cover but Arnold was shot in the back, while the 15 year-old was shot in the leg and grazed on the arm.

 The man, according to the victims, rode in the direction of Supal Street, and in the aftermath of the shooting, Arnold suffered extensive internal injuries from the bullets which struck him. Both he and the minor were immediately rushed to the KHMH, and after he held on for just over 12 hours, Arnold passed away.

 Police are still investigating, but persons living in the area believe that this was a direct retaliatory attack against men who are believed to be connected to the George Street Gang. It comes exactly one week after the murder of 25 year-old Tarique Cadle, who was killed in George Street territory to send a message to Jason “Soup” Williams the lead figure on Supal Street, and Cadle’s uncle. Police have been investigating Williams as the main person of interest in a shooting in George Street territory in which 25 year old Kariq Tzul and 27 year old Andrew Tate were injured the night before Cadle was killed. He’s facing criminal charges in which police officers who responded immediately to the shooting say that he turned his gun on them.
 Because of this rivalry, 6 persons have been shot, and 2 have died.
