Wanted man shot dead

Kemar Leacock was shot dead on Friday night

Hours after appearing on a police wanted list on Friday, Kemar Whitfield Renaldo Leacock was shot dead.

Leacock, 26, of 7th Avenue, New Orleans St. Michael, was reportedly shot several times on Friday night in Bottom Close, Wildey, St. Michael around 7:55 pm.

According to reports, Leacock tried to run away from his attackers. However, they caught him and dragged him away as he tried to seek refuge at a nearby house, before shooting him several times.

He later passed away at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

In a police notice posted earlier in the day, it stated that Leacock, who was also known as Big Eyes, along with Jabari Kenrico Gamble, was wanted in connection with serious criminal matters.

    Whatever else he was, he was also a human being and did not deserve to die like that. I don’t care what he did no one is entitled to take the law in his hands. They could have held him until the police came.

    I did not know the man , what he was or what he did to end up on a police wanted list. What I do know is that he was another human being and what is especially worrying is that it is so easy these days to take another person’s life. Who or what are we becoming?

    When ya live by the sword ya gine die by the sword.Not surprising that ” good name Bajans ” will now come out and tell themselves that we live in the perfect world and that a CRIMINAL does not deserve to die like that,but were SILENT when an INNOCENT Teacher was killed because of mistaken identity in this “perfect world “….maybe those KILLERS could have asked for the Teachers’ ID card to verify that he was the correct one to be murdered.

    Sleep with the angels is right. Satan is an angel. All the wanna be gangsters and thugs can kill one another. A bunch of ignorant, illiterate jackasses

    B,dos doesn’t need a special task to deal with crime. It need to hang some of these criminals, but this is not going to happen when we have a Governor General who doesn’t believe in capital punishment. It’s getting worse. Jail is over crowed and he talking foolishness. No hard labour and criminal enjoying their spree of crime.

      The Governor General does not determine government policy; cabinet does. And I am not aware the the GG ever expressed any views on capital punishment.

      Our inability to carry out the death penalty can be laid directly at the same colonial door steps Errol Barrow warned us not to loiter on after closing time.

    One less criminal on the streets, to waste courts time and to be kept by the tax payer. You reap what you sow, all in all no loss to society

    All we are seeing and hearing ,the minos ,killing each other, what or who is protecting the major criminal, when last one of crime bosses in Barbados got arrested.
    Bajans can boldly says and see , the politicians are not really interested in doing anything about crime in Barbados.

    Its about time criminals and some of they families , in Barbados start paying towards they criminal acts.

    A CRIMINAL just kill a CRIMINAL. What was he doing in Bottom Close ?…maybe to harm somebody…but the gangsters up there recognised him ,chased him and out he lights before he got the chance to out somebody lights,and we got people bout hey looking fa good name telling themselves that they are so caring .

    Cost of livin’ gets so high,
    Rich and poor they start to cry:
    Now the weak must get strong;
    They say, “Oh, what a tribulation!”
    Them belly full, but we hungry;
    A hungry mob is a angry mob.
    A rain a-fall, but the dirt it tough;
    A pot a-cook, but d’ food* no ‘nough.
    It is the memory which separates us from the lower animals.
    Innocent until proven guilty

    @Olutoye Walrond!!!! i would appreciate it if you would explain what is meant by “”Our inability to carry out the death penalty can be laid directly at the same colonial door steps Errol Barrow warned us not to loiter on after closing time.””” and oif you reply, please take into consideration the FACT that we are now nearly 50 years away from being under the COLONIAL task masters, remember that we are supposed to be “”Sytrict guardians of our Heritage, and FIRM Craftsmen of OUR fate””
