A resident of Old Montrose believes that many of today’s youths are choosing to solve their problems with violence.
Carl Hannaway is the uncle of Kimron “Warlord” Hannaway. He spoke to SEARCHLIGHT from his Old Montrose home on Monday.
Kimron, also known as “Dogman” was shot and killed in Old Montrose on Sunday, August 2, 2020 at around 8.45 a.m.
A video making the rounds on social media shows the 28-year-old man of Block 2000/Old Montrose lying dead on the ground with a cutlass in his right hand. He is said to have been shot as many as five times, with some of the bullets striking him in the head.
According to reports, Kimron was killed after he chopped a fellow villager as many as three times. The villager is currently at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH) under police watch.
Carl said Kimron grew up in the area and was always mannerly to him.
“…Kimron was a cool guy who mind his business,” said Carl who added that his dead nephew was not the smartest, but he respected others and knew how to make sound decisions.
“I never know him as a person to get in problems with anyone, but he would defend his rights. He was never a thief either,” Carl noted.
He added that the family feels sad about what happened, and they are sorry Kimron died like that.
A police press release issued on August 2 said one man is in custody of the police assisting with the investigation into Kimron’s shooting.
The release added that anyone with information that could assist with the investigation is asked to contact the Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) in charge of Crime at 784-456-1339, the Major Crime Unit at 784-457-1211 or any police officer or police station they are comfortable with.
All information will be dealt with confidentially.
Investigations are ongoing.
