A 25-year-old man was shot and killed near his Polhemus Street home on Monday morning, police said.
The victim was identified by his mother as Stervante Moss.
Myrna Auguste said she watched as her was shot and killed.
“He was driving my car,” she said.
“He had just gone around the corner. When he was coming back, I heard the gunshots. When looked outside I [saw] the person come out of the car and he was still shooting.
“…I was scared.”
Auguste said her son was recently released from prison on a drug charge.
“He is a loving person. He might have some habits, but he is a loving person,” she said.
“He liked to smoke and he was coming off that, but he is a nice person. He is loved by many.”
Superintendent Audley Peters said, “Initial investigations reveal that the victim was approaching his home when a vehicle stopped him.”
“Occupants exited that vehicle and discharged firearms in his direction. He was fatally wounded.”
