Men shot in Porters

Police are investigating yet another shooting. In the most recent incident of gunplay last night, two young men in their 20s were shot as they rode on a motorcycle along Porters Road, St James around 9 p.m.

Their names were being withheld by police up to late this evening.

However, police public relations officer Inspector David Welch told Barbados TODAY that they are both residents of Black Rock, St Michael. One of the men was shot in the left thigh while the other sustained a gunshot injury to his right side, near the hip. Welch said that after the shooting the men were transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in private vehicles.

Here, one of the injured men is wheeled into the Accident & Emergency Department after arriving at the hospital last night.

    Barbados is becoming the wild West. I pray that those two young men will be OK.

    There is too much gun violence in Barbados. What became of the old adage “you are your brother’s keeper? These young people simply don’t value life and all they are doing is clogging up the court system, STUPSE.

    So easy, to commit crime in Barbados, as there is no respect for the law. Chicago all states in the US 99% shootings black on black, UK , Canada, Jamaica ,Trinidad, all west Indian islands , all black Africa,
    Is it tribalism, hasn’t left us, instead of bows and arrows its guns.
    history has offered nothing to the black people.
