By BBN Staff: Last night, the home of a La Democracia family came under gunfire and a woman, whose minor son was recently charged with murder, was injured, leaving speculation on whether or not it was retaliatory violence.
Gunshots rang out last night in front of the home of Becky Estrada and when the sounds quieted, she realized she had been shot to the hip. She was rushed to the Western Regional Hospital for medical treatment.
Estrada’s 17-year-old son was charged on Tuesday, April 12 for the murder of 19-year-old Tyreak August, who was also a resident of La Democracia.

Recently, there has been a spike in crime in the village, with a shooting attempt and an alleged arson on the same night that August was murdered.
Police are still investigating those incidents and the possibility of their connection.
