Initial investigations by Police reveal that on Saturday, 9th April, 2022, at 7:30 pm John King was at the residence of Mark Smith located on Victoria Street when the incident occurred. Accordingly King was at the residence using Mark Smith’s cellphone when they heard someone shouting the word “Evil” several times. King walked to the door to check who it was, and when he opened the door someone fired several shots at him causing his injuries. King ran to the bedroom area where he collapsed.
