Man shot and killed in Warrens

Forty-six-year-old Ricardo Bryan of Black Rock, St Michael is Barbados’ latest homicide victim.

Bryan was gunned down shortly before 8 p.m. in the car park of Lucky Horseshoe in Warrens.

A number of plain-clothes investigators and uniformed officers of the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF)were on hand combing the area, which was cordoned off, for clues.

A large crowd gathered around the perimeter as news spread of the shooting, among them Bryan’s family, including his three sons.

Acting Public Relations Officer of the RBPF Station Sergeant Ronald Cobbler told Barbados TODAY the force was working activity to keep the level of crime at a minimum.

“We are trying to encourage members of the public to work with us as we try to combat this surge in gun violence.

In the last couple of weeks there have been [a number of gun-related crimes] and there will be some concern for us, so we are encouraging members of the public to use those anonymous systems of recording and pass the information so we can try to rid our streets of these illegal guns,” the police spokesman said.

      Government Maybe Monika Stolz,but this is a sign of a deeper problem. Is it a result of the over Americanization of the Island? A lack of general respect for each other? Desperation ?
      I don’t have the answers but until the answers are found no one can begin to correct these deadly occurences.

    The Barbados government really need to invest in CCTV…would really help in these investigations instead of relying on the public for information.

    The Only Thing Necessary for the Triumph of Evil is that Good Men Do Nothing… We are now paying the price for allowing lawlessness to flourish in this land. Welcome to Barganistan
