Gunshots rang out in Denham Town, leaving a one year old girl nursing gunshot wounds. Based on investigations, a man is now being sought by the police. He is known as Amani “Bling Dog” Malcolm and the police are urging him to turn himself in by 6pm this evening.
Angry residents however are encouraging the police to hunt down the alleged shooter and bring him to justice because the child could have been killed.
