An 18-year-old Gambian-American -Gambian Teenager was over the weekend killed in a drive-by shooting in the US city of Jacksonville, Florida, by unknown gunmen, Alkamba Times can report.
According to Information gathered by TAT, Buba Kolley, 18, was killed by yet-to-be-identified gunmen riding in a car.
Buba, according to sources, was driving with his friend and died on the spot while his friend was in a critical condition in hospital.
According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, officers found the two men shot inside a car that was parked along Bowden Road near the Interstate 95 south ramp after a 911 caller told first responders they heard gunshots.
Police say no one has been arrested so far, as investigators are determining if there was more than one shooter, as well as the circumstances of the shooting.
Detectives want to find out if the shooting was a case of road rage, a targeted drive-by, or a random shooting.
An uncle of the victim told TAT that the family members feel devastated as they mourn their loved one.
He described Buba as “a hardworking and respectful young man whose life was cut short by senseless gun violence in America.”
