      This comment makes no sense..its a public area ….next to a main road with a bus stop…. It has business places… Of course someone would be disembarking a vehicle…. Bullets dont come out slow…so I’m sure it was quick and she happened to be in range…. Prays on her recovery…

      She was in the wrong place at the wrong time. This is the problem with having people shooting others in public, innocent people will be hurt or killed.

      She was not in the wrong place at the wrong time, that is where she intended to be…going about her normal routine as a law abiding citizen

    It’s hard that this is going on so regularly. Barbados is too small and something should be done.The average person in Barbados should not look at a man with an illegal gun as a bad man but as an idiot breaking the law. Our kids ignorant social mindset also needs changing if it cant be changed at home try programs at school it’s a must…

    . . . . there it goes again , to echo the words of the late King Dyal . The ” black cattle ” continues to kill the “black cattle. At the rate that buhbaydus is going at the Whites , Asians , Indians , etc will soon be the majority , which means that Bim will be a better place to live..

        Agreed…a question mark would suggest she was enquiring. What ‘risk’?…everyone is entitled to express an opinion.

    Now too late to nip in the bud. Signed: A resident of the ‘always too late society’. Time to reap what we have sown. I agree with many of the comments here. Rise up heroes of the past and rescue us again. Not hero in the making amongst us. I cling to the one that so many have turned their backs on. Let the cellphones save us…..or how about our omnipotent government?

      Huasani Manard do you live in the US to make a comment like that? And its so stupid to tell someone stop degrading where you live right after degrading somewhere else like you live there. smh

      Barbados hardly has much going for it. Thinking its the best place to live is exactly why the Bds government fking yall in the ass right now with even more hardship. Stop lying.

      I love my island Barbados but please stop with the comparison of the crime rate in the USA and the crime rate in Barbados of course the crime rate is higher here in the USA but the USA is a million times bigger than little Barbados so that part of the argument is irrelevant i can fit the whole island of Barbados in central park and then do the statistic on crime and i can guarantee crime in Barbados will be way higher compare to the crime rate in central park.

    Ossie Moore, the black cattle that kill the black cattle will still be around, just that they would be fatter that before

  13. John Wesley June 10, 2017 at 11:23 pm

    Ryan Harris don’t do that. There are more killings daily in the US than even Middle East countries. Of course that does not justify any killings in Barbados. It has been called one of the safest country in the Caribbean.

    These comments are so sad , no one cares about the person that got killed or the lady that got hit, the people that read and commet are just here to belittle my lil island or walk over us blacks, oh well stay in your new country USA they is no killing up there

    The current gun problem and shootings in Barbados is a very worrying concern.
    It has become a subject to discuss to be-little one another than to see that this small issue has now become a big problem.
    Given the size of Barbados and our dependence on tourism we cannot afford to allow this type of behaviour to carry on.
    Barbados long ago was a type of an island of refuge; people felt safe and enjoyed the beauty and tranquillity of the island.
    Now almost every day they is a shooting or a vehicular accident and the sad thing is the way it is discuss and pass off until another incident.
    We don’t have a caring government, our police force are just by name, a police force having no conclusion to the matter.
    And is it ok for me to say that we have a serial shooter/s, because Barbados today news kind of lack details i.e. Police say that around 2 p.m., Agard was standing outside his vehicle, which was parked on the old compound of KFC Black Rock, when he was approached by a man who opened fire on him, shooting him multiple times about the body before fleeing the scene.
    Is someone or persons going around looking for targets and popping innocent people or are they other elements involved.
    I stand correct on this not criticise.

    Ppl, stop dropping out kids without looking back like dumb animals! Teach your children about the sanctity of life, along with how to make ethical, moral and respectful decisions…. Our young men lack proper parental guidance! Block life is no way to raise our young males….

    Until someone stops the flow of guns into Bim, this will go on. Just think…..maybe you can get away with a gun…. how are they getting bullets for the guns? Maybe the police should ask for help . Or help for the drug problem. I do not have the answer but I pray that ALL Bajansl wake up and open their eyes and be mindful of the people around them.

    All this lawlessness in Barbados need to stop it way out of control and people stop comparing the crime rate in Barbados to the USA cauae honestly the crime rate in barbados way up there compare to the usa you can practically fit the whole island of barbados in brooklyn alone barbados to small for crime to be up like this i have never seen men walking the street in broad day light shooting at people shooting up minivans and busses with passengers and witnesses all around and just don’t care but you know why this is happening cause people afraid to speak up and speak out so it will continue.

    Corruption in B’dos Government , Politics and law enforcement dates back to the day Pele was murdered in Barbados. Things were corrupted back then , still is , and will continue to get worse.

  27. jeffrey Durant June 11, 2017 at 7:23 pm

    We hate one another thsts why we murdered and to compare usa to barbados its a joke.. cause more 12yrs killed more people they than adults kills each other here .police killed more people there last yrs than we had in 10yrs amost of the crims here are deportees.

  29. smiley June 12, 2017 at 8:27 am

    The wild wild west ! Stupid men who think that this is a game shooting up the place .Barbados time to let the police know the criminals in your neighbourhood.These people are destroying the good reputation of this country and abusing the QEH services. We. Need to ship them off to pelican island no return or out to sea in a container .Send the drug dealers and corrupt people too.Take back our country NOW!!

  30. Peter June 21, 2017 at 9:15 am

    Things are only going to get worse to be honest, so long as nothing changes.
    Poverty leads to crime, but more crime means less tourism- so less income- so more poverty- so more crime- so less tourism- so less income- so more poverty- so more crime.
