“Old beef” behind Auto Care shop shooting

Posted: Monday, December 21, 2020. 6:34 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: The past may have come back to haunt at least one victim of Saturday’s mass shooting incident at St Martin One Stop Auto Care Shop.

Two persons are being sought to assist the police with their investigations, Assistant Superintendent of Police Alejandro Cowo reported today.

The suspects were inside a vehicle after six as they pulled up to the shop on Partridge Street Extension, where the quintet of targets was closing up for the night.

When the gunfire subsidized, 30-year-old Terrence Rhaburn was dead, while four others were injured. Albert Clother, the face of the Auto Care Shop, is still hospitalized.

ASP Cowo acknowledged that the persons working at the shop did have a genuine change of heart, and police have stepped up their patrols to keep the lid on retaliation.

“Criminals are criminals; and they might say ‘I forgive you,’ but I do not believe they forget what has happened in the past. And the minute they have time to capitalize they go ahead and capitalize on their past enemies who may believe that nothing will happen,” the senior officer observed.

The “old beef” had to do with a past murder for which revenge was sought and apparently obtained, police added.

There were shots fired in the area of Croton Lane, not too far away, on Friday night, but no one was injured in that incident.
