Clarke a ‘cool guy’

It should never have happened to him –– the muted words

of friends and neighbours of Ronnie Omar Clarke of Crusher

Site Road, Prospect in St James.

“He was a cool guy who stayed away from trouble.

He never got into any high words with anybody. [We’re]

distraught. The way things happened, they shouldn’t have . . .

,” a resident said of the 35-year-old father of two boys, ages

seven and one.

Clarke had been sitting outside his home when he was shot

several times, sustaining injuries to the left arm and right thigh.

He ran from there to an area on Prospect Road, Highway 1,

where he collapsed and died.

Police public relations officer Inspector David Welch told

Barbados TODAY that investigations were ongoing.

“We are questioning persons and recording a number of

statements . . . in trying to ascertain who would have done

this,” he said.

“We are appealing to any person or persons who might

have any information about who the perpetrator is to give us

a call.”

In an unrelated matter, the 12-year-old boy charged with

the murder of 14-year-old Andagan Smith is to reappear in the

Juvenile Court on Wednesday.

Smith, of Cypress Street, The City, was fatally stabbed

on November 1, while at the junction of Nelson Street and

Waterloo Alley also in Bridgetown. (RG)
