Man shot and killed
A man was shot and killed in a house on Wilson Track yesterday, police reported.
ASP Audley Peters said he was found lying in the doorway of a single-story structure.
“As a result of the investigation, it was revealed that the male was at his home when persons knocked on the door,” Peters told reporters at the scene.
“As he attempted to open the door, it was pried open and he received a single shot to the head.”
The victim was identified as Carlos Brown, a 55-year-old construction worker.
His brother-in-law, Derek Feaste, told reporters that he heard the gunshot as he was doing his morning devotions.
He said he found Brown lying on his back inside the house.
Feaste said he entered the house and tried to talk to his brother-in-law.
“…I saw when he took a breath,” he said.
“And then after I saw the bloodstain in his nose, I kind of, like, rolled him over on the side.”
Feaste said he believed that rolling Brown over would eliminate the chances of him choking on blood.
“Then, he laid there for a while and, all of a sudden, he took his last breath,” he said.
Feaste said he believes Brown was killed as a result of mistaken identity.
He said he had no sweethearts and no enemies.
Feaste said he had no involvement with the police.
Feaste said his family will grieve the loss.
“I guess God will have to do the rest from there for us,” he said.
Brown had two sons, according to his brother-in-law.
Police appealed for members of the community to come forward with any information related to the incident.
