A young woman is now dead after being hit by a stray bullet on Sunday night in Bois Den, Jacmel.
An eyewitness on the scene says that a group of young men was being fired upon when the victim, who had only arrived on the scene minutes earlier to buy something to eat, was caught in the crossfire.
“We heard gunshots out of nowhere. Everyone had to run for cover”, the witness recalled. “The girl had just come to buy something and a stray bullet hit her in the head.”
Two young men were also hit by bullets and are now nursing their injuries at the hospital. Their current status is presently unknown.
The young woman is believed to be the mother of one child.
