Murder and shooting happened within a block of each other


Posted: Monday, July 25, 2022. 8:58 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: In the span of approximately 20 minutes starting after 4:30 on Monday evening, a single shooter, according to reports, caught two victims only a block from each other in the area of Ebony and Vernon Streets and Amandala Drive (formerly Partridge Street).

Police have confirmed that 49-year-old Darren Erwin Banks, of Oleander Street, was hit first while walking on Ebony Street at around 20 minutes to five; he fell into the drain not far from Santa Barbara Street.

The killer then apparently turned toward the Vernon Street corner with the Drive and approached a group in the yard at the corner, opening fire.

Injured was Kendrick Walton of Corner Vernon Street and Amandala Drive, who was taken to hospital where he remains; the shooter escaped.

Police are investigating both incidents, including their relationship if any.

      Your so stupid that you had to take the time to type something like this and dont even knw what a simple comment like this could do to a person family member….instead of saying rest in peace your going to sit there and be dis immature…its really clear to see that you don’t even have understanding cause it clearly stated that he was once was in gang it didnt say his is still in a gang…what if he was anyways he’s still human and we feel pain for our live ones…..people like you needs to stop doing these kind of comments😡😡

    He got exactly what he deserved. I myself does does not feel sorry or any remorse for him even if he was once in the gang he sure took quiet a few lives and hurt a lot of people I can attest to that. Am surprised someone didn’t end his life a long time ago. Yes I said it he murdered my brother while he was standing at a shop 50 bullets how heartless who was only 20 years old at the time and my brother was In no relation to gang. So yes they picked his body out the drained the same way they had to picked up my brother karma is real.. I said what I said so anyone who has a problem deal with it..
