POLICE IDENTIFY SHOOTING VICTIMS

The three young men who were reportedly shot at Kirwan Terrace housing community early Sunday morning have been identified as Rashaun J. Brady, Raoul Corneiro and Elliot Hodge.
The release issued by Territorial Police Chief Jose Garcia did not give ages or addresses for the three men.
Brady told police the three had returned from a boat ride on New Year's night and were sitting on a sidewalk when a red car came driving toward them with its lights out.
Brady said he saw a hand come out of the window of the vehicle holding what appeared to be a 9mm or .380 semi-automatic pistol, according to the release.
When the three victims got up and ran, they were shot. Hodge was shot in the left shoulder; the bullet reportedly shattered on impact and lodged in the bone. Corneiro was shot in both legs; one of the bullets shattered the bone in his left leg, the release said.
Brady's head was grazed by a bullet. He was treated and released from the hospital.
The police are continuing to investigate the incident, which is reportedly the result of an ongoing turf battle between factions of different public housing communities.
Anyone with information is asked to call 774-4050 or 911.
