Resident Says Babonneau Homicide Victim Had Survived Two Previous Shootings


A Babonneau resident has disclosed that the teenage victim of Sunday’s fatal shooting had survived two previous gun attacks.

Police have identified the deceased as nineteen-year-old Chris Volney.

A police release said Volney was known to the police.

According to the release, the Babonneau police station received a shooting report at about 6:15 pm on Sunday and found two victims at the scene in Garrand, Babonneau.

A medical practitioner pronounced Volney, who had been shot multiple times, dead.

And an ambulance transported an injured young female to a medical facility.

Babonneau resident Nathan described the teenage deceased as a ‘cool guy’ who worked as a mechanic.

Nathan told reporters he was unaware that Volney was in trouble with anyone.

But Nathan said he understood that Volney had survived two previous shootings.

“The third time, they put him down for life,” he declared.

“The police have to take better action because we have to stop the violence. That ain’t taking us nowhere to see young lives just going,” Nathan observed.

He said it was a very sad situation.

The police, meanwhile, have urged anyone with information regarding the shooting to contact the nearest police station, the Babonneau Police Station at 456-4120, 456-4121, or the Crime Hotline at 555 for anonymous reporting.

  1. This doesn’t add up with what the family is saying. Survived two previous shootings and they have no idea. I bet right now they will retaliate and know who to do it too.

  2. A cool guy who worked as a mechanic eh? is what was he doing thats why people wanted to kill him to a point this is the third time they shot at him. I agree the killing has to stop but who knows sometimes he working on people vehicle and not finishing the job or people paying him and he not doing the work i am not saying this is what killed him but most of the times our actions in not being honest to people leading up to your demise

  3. The Babonneau police have to do their job effectively to Solve this Case there’s too much information on the Ground to Commence the investigation .So many Homicides in Babonneau how many have the Babonneau police Solve .Close down that police Station. From Lastnight the police should have had Leads

  4. Later this week the Babonneau police will Hand Over the Case to Major Crime at Phq and that’s it Case close

  5. Mel was Murdered after the Boxing plant in Chassin .That investigation is dead this is really Crap .Babonneau police handed over the Case to Major crime and that’s it

  6. Nathan really. is people like you that encouraging criminals like him. the saying goes itf you live by the gun you die by it. everybody in the community knew about the guy. the man was a known thug. when he around no one was safe. yea he was a good boy. smh.
