Shooting in Nelson Street

At this hour police are investigating reports of a shooting in Nelson Street, The City.

All police could confirm so far is that the incident occurred. However, one eyewitness told Barbados TODAY that two people sustained gunshot wounds as a result of a ride by shooting.

The perpetrator apparently rode into the popular watering hole on a motor bike around 7:15 p.m. and began firing shots.

One of the victims, who was reportedly shot in the area of the left knee, left the scene in a private vehicle, while the other victim – the extent of whose injuries could not be immediately ascertained – was transported by ambulance to hospital, the eyewitness said.

Police spokesman Acting Inspector Stephen Griffith has promised to release details as soon as they come to hand.

    @, all, hail hail, (bajans beware ), see what democracy, freedom of speech and…… (party politics )…………has done in the (UK) here in this said (UK) its a single party state , no one political party to really challenge the ruling (Conservatives Establishment)..

    Looking how close we are behind in barbados ,our politicians have no respect , or regards for our mass of the black population, they do what they like to sustain that 1% , who plays no part in the political management of barbados, these people dont lose a nights sleep they are secured,,,,
    We need something to be put in place to give us bajans , some control over our politicians…..before the next coming election……
    I am still living between barbados the (UK) ….. What scares me , if days after the upcoming election we then realize the same government is in power,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

      @jrsmith – Well said. But this is all they the politicians can do. They have no power in this place.
      So called black people do not know the laws to have politicians removed from office when they are non-performing, non-productive, stooging, cooning etc. This is another piece of the puzzle that was left out from the masses.
      And that 1% does play a part in the political management of Bim, once the docile and sheeple put those politicians in their seats then the 1% manages them. So they are managing, who else will manage?? All that is left now to do is to tell lies and engage in corruption. AND THERE IS NO WAY OUT EITHER.
