Shooting in pleasant hall

cResidents of Pleasant Hall in St Matthias, Christ Church, had a scare when two armed men, on foot, shot at a man and his wife, who were driving along that stretch of road after ten this morning.

Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch said that as a result the husband lost control of the car, crashing into the guard wall of a residence. The couple both received minor injuries –– none by the shooters, who managed to escape.

The woman was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by

ambulance. One Pleasant Hall resident told Barbados TODAY, he

was happy the incident, just a stone’s throw from the St Matthias Magistrates’ Court, did not occur earlier.

“If that did happen when the schoolchildren were out, then it would have been worse. This is something else!”

Declining to give his name, the man added: “Something gotta get do ‘bout all this shooting so all the time! All the time so?!” (RG)
