By BBN Staff: After two days of fighting for her life against a gunshot wound, baby Etana Bennett died at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.
She had been shot to the right temple while she slept around 2 a.m. on Sunday, July 22. Police confirmed that a lone shooter entered the family’s yard on Gill Street and opened fire on the house, injuring baby Etana and her mother 23-year old Alva Moody.
While Moody received gunshot wounds to the buttocks, right lower thigh, and a graze to the abdomen; police believe the intended target was her common-law husband Roy Bennett, who has had attempts made in his life before.
Roy Bennett escaped from the ordeal unharmed.
