Shooting victim is cousin of “Ghost”, killed in 2012

By Marion Ali, Staff Reporter

Credible reports are that Liston Myers, the man identified identified as Sunday morning’s shooting victim, was not the intended target. Myers was repoetedly walking with a man who is believed to have been the intended target, but he escaped unhurt.

Myers is the cousin of Leonard “Ghost” Myers who was one of four men whose throats were slashed in 2012 in a house on George Street. He underwent surgery and is now in a stable condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital.

The shooting is believed to be part of the ongoing internal George Street conflict which police have been trying to diffuse, but without much success.
