The police reported that, shortly after 10:00 pm on Wednesday night residents of Clarkes Street in Mount Salem were still in shock at the gruesome discovery of the body of 15-year-old Green Pond High School student Shineka Gray, when tragedy hit the community again.

The gunmen then  jumped back into the car which sped away, while the three wounded men were rushed to the Cornwall Regional hospital where one was pronounced dead and the other two admitted.
