An 18-year-old youth of Albouystown was gunned down this morning at a street football game in the community.
Details of the shooting incident are unclear.
The dead young man has been identified as Christopher Mansfield aka “Gully Bop”. His mother broke down in tears at the Georgetown Hospital as doctors announced the man’s death to her.
