Radio Reporter Wounded In Haiti

A radio reporter was wounded in a drive-by shooting shortly after covering a shooting at a high school dance.

Jean-Daril Laraque was standing at a bus stop Saturday evening when unidentified gunmen in a pickup truck opened fire, hitting him once in the waist. There were no immediate arrests.

Laraque, a Radio Caciques reporter, had covered a shooting incident at a high school in which three gunmen opened fire to break up a dance.

Police arrived and tried to disperse the frightened crowd by shooting into the air. An argument ensued between police and reporters who were trying to calm the officers down, Laraque said.

The gunmen, meanwhile, drove to a nearby plaza and opened fire in front of a movie house, killing one person and wounding another. Laraque said he was shot minutes later as he stood at the bus stop.
