No arrests made for recent murders

No one has been arrested in connection with either of the country’s latest two murders.

Police Public Relations Officer Inspector David Welch told Barbados TODAY that they are still looking for the ones responsible for Monday night’s shooting death of Mark Walton of Fitts Village, St James and the murder of Richmond Gap resident Jermaine Harper on July 30.

“The most recent murders are still being vigorously investigated,” Welch said.

He revealed that there are also no suspects in custody for the shooting incident on Kadooment Day, which left a 20-year-old Christ Church man – whose name police has still not released because of concerns about his safety – nursing a gunshot wound to the stomach.

The man is still warded at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Welch also reported that lawmen are also carrying out investigations into a fight on board a Transport Board bus while it was travelling along Chapel Road, St Phillip yesterday.

He said the incident, which occurred around 4:35 p.m., resulted in one woman being slightly injured and damage to one of the bus windows.

The three men involved in the fight have not been apprehended. (FW)
