Police probe St James shooting

Police are investigating the shooting death of a 25-year-old St Michael man, which occurred in the early hours of this morning at Lascelles Road, St James.

According to lawmen, preliminary investigations suggest that around 3:15 a.m. officers on duty at the Holetown Police Station heard what appeared to be a number of gunshots coming from the area of Holetown.

When officers went to investigate, they discovered the deceased lying motionless on the ground with multiple gunshot wounds about the body.

Two other men in their 30s also sustained gunshot injuries and were transported to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for medical attention.  One was taken by ambulance and the other by private transport.

    Many of our young people are playing certain games that control their minds. When they least expect it, they act out those games only to be sorry afterwards. The music to which they listen does the same thing to them. Thirdly, they do not know who they are as human beings and the unactualized potential for good that is latent in them. In other words, how many of them know that they have the spirit of Yahoveh the Most High within? Darkness has been allowed to rage war on our future of tomorrow. Always remember, if you want to enter a strong man’s house you first have to bind that strong man. The forces of darkness are binding Barbados (the strong man) by destroying its “strength – our young people who are to be our adults of tomorrow. If we programme them to hate and kill each other, at whose mercy will the older folk be as the years roll on? Strangers shall rule us!!! There is much talk about evil but who created evil? The creator is master over its creation but we are teaching our young people openly that satan exists while denying that there is the creator – Yahoveh the Most High.

    And one guy want Customs to stop searching all containers. The port/Customs must continue to be up front and don’t bow to anyone in order to keep these guns from entering BIM. These young fools that killing people should go to Jail for ever, let out the ones that up there for a mere spliff and let them go clean the streets. Shut down half of DODDS , no need to feed so many at tax payers expense. Most of the petty crimes thieves can help work on an NCC ticket ( part-time) for free.

    Totally agree Mr Alleyne. Government invest in up to date port surveillance equipment. You would not even need to open. Scanning is effective. Check out UK and Australian border control. Too much emphasis on tourism. Let’s see if we can save LIVES!!
