A night of celebration turned deadly after one man was shot and killed while four juveniles were injured by gunfire.
Residents of an apartment complex on Stack Avenue, Nassau Village were hosting a baby shower around 9 pm on Sunday, on their doorsteps, when two men drove by and fired gunshots “indiscriminately” at the attendees.
The police said the grey Nissan Note was used by the gunmen to escape the scene.
The crowd ran for cover, upsetting tables, but one man identified by a sister on social media, as 20-year-old Jorodly, was fatally wounded and died on the scene.
Screams pierced the night as a woman cried and yelled inconsolably, in Haitian Creole.
The juveniles, all male victims, were taken to the hospital for medical assistance, but police have not revealed the extent of their injuries.
Police do not know the motive for the shooting but are asking the public to assist them with the investigation.
The murder count now stands at 90.
