Uniondale man shot in broad daylight
UNIONDALE (WABC) -- He was 26 and working towards his dream of becoming a police officer. However, on Sunday night, Ainsworth Evans is the focus of a police homicide investigation.
Evans was murdered in front of his Uniondale, Long Island home.
According to his sister Melesia, Evans always walked in the good side of life and didn't have an enemy.
So who would shoot her happy-go-lucky brother in the face? The shooting happened 5 p.m. Saturday while the sun was still bright, and while his mother never imagined such a nightmare would descend on her.
Ainsworth Evans was working in real estate while getting his college credits in criminal justice. Eyewitness News is told the victim recently passed the police entrance exams for New York City, Nassau County and Suffolk County. He wanted to keep his options open, but on Sunday night, detectives were trying to find answers for his grieving family.
