Eyewitnesses describe Bois D’Orange shooting

Eyewitnesses have been describing the moment two masked gunmen opened fire on a motorcycle rider in an apparent drive-by shooting at Bois D’Orange this morning.

One man, identified only as Sampson, said he narrowly escaped the gunfire as he waited for the gas station to open to fuel his sanitation truck.

Sampson said shortly after arriving, the motorcycle pulled up next to him, when suddenly a car appeared and opened fire in the direction of the motorcycle.

A bullet pierced through the windscreen of Sampson’s truck as he sat in the driver seat.

“Garcon, I surprise so bad,” Sampson said.

The sanitation truck owner, who was seated in a separate vehicle behind the truck and asked not to be identified, said he heard the noise and then saw a blood-soaked man running in his direction asking for help.

“I saw a fella run come to me and asking me for help and he’s in blood so I told him well try and get the ambulance, not me, I can’t help,” the eyewitness said. “When I looked carefully I saw is a gunshot wound.”

“Whilst opening my door he ran in front on me, looking for help on the other side because I refused him help, so then I saw a blue car stop and then some gunshots firing,” the truck owner said.

He said both the front and back windscreens of his sanitation truck have been broken.

A motorcyclist, said to be in his late 20’s to early 30’s is reported to have sustained a gunshot wound to the arm. His condition is unknown.

Reports say two masked assailants fled the scene in a Toyota Corolla car.

    God can only help ppl who obey him. It will get worst like the bible predicted. If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways; only then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sins and heal their land.

    @society. Shut up. A man just get shot in your presence….. The shooters are driving about. Helping the victim is at your on risk. Uou cannot take chances. The owner of the truck should refuse him and RUN. They all will learn to behave themselves.

    This guy takes the cake to admit that someone in danger asked you for help and you refused. Bravo to you for not having any compassion but just remember you might need assistance like him some day.

    I mean I understand not wanting to get involved and fearing for your life but couldn’t you at least call the police or an ambulance for the guy? It is another human being after all.

    It’s understandable not wanting to drive but if the young man injuries were in any other part of his body he would of bled to death. If only the man called 911. The young man stayed there like forever before an ambulance arrived.the young man was on his way to work. You see how early he has to get up from his bed and jealous niggas want to kill him for what he have.smh. life is so unfair
