“I heard gunshots so I ran with other people to take cover and when I eventually came outside to check what had happened, I found his body next to my car,” recalled Gordon.

Gordon said the man was shot six times, with two bullets hitting him in the head.

The murder is under investigation and no arrests have been made, said Joni.
