Brewster’s killing no surprise

Police are turning to the public for assistance as they try to solve the island’s latest gun-related killing.

Lawmen are asking anyone with information that will help with the investigation into today’s shooting death of Kevin Brewster to contact either the police emergency number, 211, the nearest police station or Crime Stoppers at 1-800 –TIPS (8477).

Brewster, believed to be in his mid-30s, was apparently shot in the back of the head in the Trench Town area of Coleman Road in his Jackson, St Michael district at about 2:40 p.m. today, police said in a release.

He was treated by emergency medical technicians on the scene before he was rushed by ambulance to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries, the police stated.

His killing came as no surprise to one resident, who told Barbados TODAY this evening the sign of danger were clear.

“He get shoot about two weeks ago first, and then the men went looking for him Wednesday night, shoot up bout there Wednesday night and they come back for him just now,” said the resident who requested anonymity.

    and this Resident did not annonymously called the Police on any of these occasions ???

    That makes you Mr/Mrs/Ms annonymous, a part of the problem, not a part of the Solution, The RBPF CANNOT do this alone, they need your help.

    You can call the Police Help line 800 Number, and don’t be afraid it is answered in Canada (as far as i am aware) not Barbados, not any chance of anyone in Barbados finding out who called.

    Your help is appreciated.
