Woman dies after being shot at ATM

Police are investigating the unnatural death of a 58-year-old St Michael woman at University Drive, Black Rock, St Michael last night.

The woman, whose name has not been disclosed, was attempting to use the Automatic Teller Machine (ATM) around 9 p.m. when she was attacked and shot by two men.

She was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital and later succumbed to her injuries.

Police are appealing to anyone with information about the incident to contact the Black Rock Police Station at 417-7500, or 417-7505. Police Emergency 211, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-8477, or the nearest police station.

Lawmen have also advised members of the public to adhere to a number of safety tips when using ATMs.

  1. Avoid using an ATM after dark. If you must, choose one that is well lit and not in an isolated location.
  2.  As you leave the ATM, be aware of anything suspicious. If you think you are being followed, go to an area with a lot of people and call the police.3
  3. Try to avoid using an ATM by yourself, take someone you trust with you, or only use an ATM when others are around

        Crystal Fagan, not knowing exactly where the shooting took place but if the incident happened anywhere in the vicinity of the ATM all like now their photos would be all over the TV and media he cops would be right on their tail but Barbados want to do things like the big boys but they are not ready yet, same thing with the plastic and have no program to have certain days for the collection of plastic, card board, glass, papers, etc. but want to charge consumers for a plastic bag but after that, what will become of the bag? nothing different.

      Sharon Taylor; when they catch these morons, they will spend about 4 to 6 years before the case goes to trial and if convicted the court wants a probation report for a person convicted of arm-robbery and wounding and then the judge would tell the moron they took into account time served and of the 8 years that was for the crime, you did 4years and all you will be sentence to is 4 years. Arm-robbery and wounding is about 25 years cash but it Barbados it is treated like a misdemeanor.

      John, I’m not sure where you’re from but if you’re from a western country such as the UK, USA or Canada then all of these countries have higher homicide rates proportionally than Barbados. Crime is everywhere, and on the whole, visitors rate rarely victims of crime so I wouldn’t let this put you off visiting Barbados.

      There is an Attorney General that is a complete waste, crime is like never before and all he has said to the people of Barbados that no one will be put to death, “Not on my watch.” One day the chickens will come to roost. In Barbados not one candidate that is running in the upcoming election is saying vote for me, I`ll be tough on crime. Women don`t general be killed in robberies but I always say Barbados do things different from the rest in almost everything.

      The police do a great job keeping Barbados safe but the murderous criminals have up the thing like the lawless unions. Zero tolerance once the policy of the police has slipped. In New York crime was cut in half overnight when police employed zero tolerance. Go after the petty law breakers its likely they wont reach the stage where guns appear. Yesterday a helmetless motorcyclist standing on his scrambler frightened road users as he wheelie and race past H&B. A common sight on our streets. Zero tolerance by the police can start there. Not all motor cyclists do foolishness but a crackdown is due tweak the laws and charge and arrest them. Spilffs in their mouths and wheels in the air no license or insurance transporting drugs and weapons. Criminals come in all stripes police cant focus only on the pants under their ass humbugs. The heights and terraces got evil doers too even the RBPF have rouges in their ranks. But evidence shows the blocks are the marketplace for illegal activity, drugs and guns. The public supports you RBPF restart zero tolerance. Don’t let more innocent women die at the hands of cowards with guns. More roadblocks more searches. RBPF you have many crime fighting strategies at your disposal use them.

    Based on the information in this article, this Royal Bank location at the bottom of the University , is a real security risk after the sun goes down.
    The location is convenient , but has serious security issues, with lighting along with a very poorly lit car park and bushes.

    The problem i have is that this government has not taken the increase of crime seriously.
    THEY WILL ONLY TAKE IT SERIOUSLY WHEN IT HIT TOURISM, AND THEN THEY GOLDEN HEN WILL DIE.
    The amount of unsolved murders, shootings, robberies etc, and the United Nations having to put out serious crime alert, has not got the attention of this government.

    THIS IS CROP OVER AND CARIFESTA FRUNDEL, DON’T YOU AND YOPUR GOVERNMENT GET IT???

    What is also very clear is that gun control laws in Barbados are clearly not working. Therfore, another solution has to be found including using greater intelligence tools to find the importers of illegal guns and hanging them. Maybe use the forensic science building for the intended purpose. Charge anyone found with a gun for every crime committed with that gun. Even if they did it or not, that might stop a few from handling those community guns.

    We really need to do something about this crime. With the many drug raids in recent time criminals are perhaps making up by robbing innocent people. We need to increase the stop and search for guns activities. But when the poice starts this some lawyer will be saying it is illegal and some members of the public will be protesting. Guns must be coming in at the ports of entry. Our own brothers and sisters must be aware of who is bringing in the guns and how. Time to stop this madness.

Secondly, to the RBPF, should I feel followed and as per your instructions I find a place where there are a lot of people and call for your assistance, I sincerely hope that I don’t end up in a place which isn’t secure anymore because all the people left and I still waiting.

    You must also consider , all of the gun crime is always in barbados is..( black on black) look who is filling (DODDS ) black young men…………..(what is sad and hurtful why shoot her ) this is frightening ……..
    I would chance this and say she is a black woman , this dont happen to white people ….. or all hell would break loose , our Barbados is …….****ed up , drugs and guns is not colonialism this is the crap from the (US)…blacks , ghetto and boys from the hood mentality………………………………..

    Oh Boy ! First of all, R.I.P to poor Lady, shot and killed just going about her normal life, getting some of her hard earned cash from the cash machine …. an act we all do on a daily/weekly basis, usually without any such incident happening. I am married to a ( very lovely ) Bajan man, and have been visiting Bim for a long number of years; I LOVE BARBADOS … when I first visited, and stepped off the plane, I felt a sense of Tranquility and Peace on this small island, that I have felt NOWHERE else …. I am so sorry to say, not any more ! We still come, but this September visit may well be our last, because we have noticed a big change in the atmosphere on the island, and some areas are absolutely No Go places to be visiting Night, or Day !! We have family in Station Hill St Michael, and friends dotted thereabouts, but tend to only visit in daylight hours now, instead of evenings ….such a shame.! I sincerely hope that things start to change soon, otherwise I fear that this beautiful Jewel in the Caribbean will lose it’s lustre and attractiveness for very many tourists ….my Heart Bleeds for my favourite place on God’s Earth …

    How do we get the guns off our street people? I say this now, if I catch wind of someone with an illegal gun in my neighborhood I will turn them into the authorities. It can be done by calling the police or by using Crime Stoppers We the people need to get the guns off our streets.

    It’s true. People would go all out and murder someone knowing full well they won’t get much more than free meals and lodging up at Dodds.

    When they catch those thugs, and they will catch them, they should publicly flog them with a cat-o-nine tails and then hang them. A powerful deterrent message must be sent to others like them.

    @mack!!!! you don’e seem to understand what has happened to Barbados, in order to sustain the FALSE Notion that we Punch above our weight, we run around the World and put our signatures to every piece of Paper put in front of us andthe Cameras, not seemingly understandind what we are signing, only to find out later that we can no longer do things that we have always done, like NOT being able to HANG Murderers anymore, because we signed a Treaty to that affect with the Inter-American Court of Human Rights. T&T did like wise,but has since rescinded their signature and are NO LONGER bound by that Body.
    Unless we do the same, we will no longer be able to HANG anyone, anymore. Someone outside of Barbados is telling us what we can and cannot do, i was of the OPINION that that ended on 30/11 1966, but i guess i was wrong.

    This is extremely sad and these men will meet judgment for this heinous act….

    The condition of things in the world shows that troublous times are right upon us. The daily papers are full of indications of a terrible conflict in the near future. Bold robberies are of frequent occurrence. Strikes are common. Thefts and murders are committed on every hand. Men possessed of demons are taking the lives of men, women, and little children. Men have become infatuated with vice, and every species of evil prevails.

    The only satisfaction this dead lady’s family is going to get/have from this , the (BPF) find the people who killed her , hang them or put them in prison for the rest of they lives…………………. Other than that nothing else is going to happen ………….
    Will bet the priminister and all the rest of his useless government , is out of the country or hiding some where so no one could ask them what they think of this murder…….

    The police has got to make an effot and get these guns off the street.I’ve said this time and time again. Barbados is becoming unsafe. Do these thugs have no pride for this island or themselves. As a christian, I don’t believe in the death penalty but I think that when found guilty of murder a life sentence should mean what it says. I live in a large town in Scotland and I feel safe to walk anywhere and anytime of the day or night. I’m not saying that there are no problems, but gun crime is not one of them.

    Let’s hope that these two thugs could be identified quickly ,by cameras or anyone that might have seen or heard some thing suspicious. I think the Barbadian Government have to change some laws that will allow Police to stop and search anyone suspicious of being or acting in a suspicious manner. They are those bleeding souls who think the Police are overstepping authority when they apprehend or question some of the lawless young men that are just intent on stealing or committing crimes in general. It is these same folk who complain when one of their family members or close associates are victimized.
    Condolence goes to this women’s family and friends. Let’s just hope these scum bags are caught quickiy and justice prevails.
