2 wounded in bloody fight at Green Flowers

A bloody free for all fight ensued on Thanksgiving Day, 2 November at the Green Flowers Entertainment Center situated at the New Georgia Junction on Somalia Drive, reportedly wounding two persons severely. The two victims, who are yet to be identified, were rushed separately at two health centers for medical attention. One of the victims is said to have been taken to the Trinity Healing Temple (THT) Health Center on Barnerville Estate Road, and the other at the Redemption Hospital in the Municipal Borough of New Kru Town on Bushrod Island following a bloody fight.

Eyewitnesses told this paper that the fight started Thursday night, 2 November while customers were enjoying themselves at the entertainment center when an alleged notorious drug dealer only identified as Dolo accompanied by a group of men, allegedly attacked the two wounded victims with bottles containing alcoholic drinks.

Witnesses say in the process, one of the victim’s head was smashed several times with bottles containing alcoholic drinks by Dolo and his men, adding that the suspects further burst one eye of the other victim during the fight. As a result of the situation, witnesses indicate that the Liberia National Police (LNP) was called in by some fleeing customers to ensure that the situation was brought under control.

Accordingly, when armed LNP officers arrived on the scene, they observed that everything went upside down as people fled for their lives. Witnesses say the police appeared compelled to fire several rounds in the air as a means of containing the situation. Upon being identified by some of the customers as one of the trouble -makers, a man only identified as Sam, was said to be apprehended by the police while his closed associates that were believed to be involved in the disturbance at the entertainment center, reportedly fled the scene under the cover of darkness.

When this reporter visited the THT Health Center on Friday, 3 November, medical authorities there confirmed receiving one of the bloodstained victims. But they say he was treated and later discharged. The clinic’s authorities disclosed that the victim wounds on the head, has been reporting to the medical facility for monitoring and dressing of the wound. But in a follow up with Police Spokesman Sam Collins, he told this paper that he would call back later
