St Thomas man fatally shot

A St Thomas family has been left grief stricken following the shooting death of their loved one, Jamar Grazette.

Grazette, 26, who is known in the biking fraternity as Big Rock, was shot around 12.30 a.m. in Hope Road, Orange Hill, St James, just a short distance from his Arch Hall, St Thomas home.

When Barbados TODAY visited  the Grazette family a few hours ago, his grieving mother Judyann Grazette could hardly find the words to describe her pain.


She said the last time she saw her son was yesterday morning before she left home to take his brother to orientation at the Samuel Jackman Prescod Polytechnic.

Family members described the deceased as a quiet individual who had a bubbly personality.

Police are continuing investigations.

      Enough laws are in place here to deal with such matters, no need for more. It is up to the enforcement of the laws of Barbados to hunt down the ones who breaks the laws. They that live by the gun will die by the gun.

      Sand Rene agree,because all murders are not necessary associate to one being a gun slinger. I understand the latest victim was not a thug.

      Sand Rene , the principle of the logic remains, those who have killed or practice killing will be killed in a similar manner. GOD’S statements always comes true.
      If the person was innocent of such and was killed, that is rough. But if they played a part in an unknown matter, then GOD’S statements will be fulfilled.

    Where do you all think this behaviour from the people who uses guns comes from, this is how black people is being control to destroy they own societies , to keep the people scared thats why most shooting are senseless stupidity. Our real problem the politicians who claim to be the government is doing nothing to stop this madness, because it doesn’t effect them or they friends…

    Bajans must get they fingers out stop looking at the clouds there is nothing there, we must help our police a lot of you are deceited you know who is the big criminals, people should start using they cell phones to capture any criminal images they can ..

    Barbados is them and us don’t expect to get proper justice , nobody bothers about us. we must look after ourselves….

    Bajans should Remember that slogan ,no water no vote …
