As investigators probed the scene, Cash said, “We can appeal to members of the public who live in this area or who may have been in the area at the time of the incident to contact the police.
“This is a residential area where a lot of persons are in it, so hopefully we will be able to get a bit more information whether or not it’s a drive-by or persons.”
Cash said the police will deploy its policy strategy to prevent any further retaliation. “You can see the police presence every day throughout the day and night.”
