Shooting incident in Cane Vale

One man was injured during a shooting incident at Cane Vale, Christ Church.

Lawmen say 19-year-old Rolando Sealy, who is a resident of Cane Vale, was liming in the area with other men sometime after 8 p.m. on Tuesday when a motorcar approached, and one of the occupants opened fire on the group before speeding away.

As a result, Sealy suffered a gunshot injury to his right bicep. He was transported to the state-run Queen Elizabeth Hospital by private motorcar for medical attention.

Police investigations are continuing.

    Earlier in the year a statement was made by a police authority last year saying that 14 unnatural deaths were a good number compared to other countries (paraphrasing) so I hope that in this time each and every act of shameful violence will be treated as the tragedy it is.

      Right…. I can’t for the life of me remember who said it but it was in the paper. I don’t think it was the commissioner but then again I paid more attention to the quote

    WOW, it’s really the wild wild west here.
    Don’t these want to be thugs know that the world is watching?
    All it takes is a travel warning from the UK or the USA and our fragile tourist industry will fail, then things would get a lot worst.

    Wise up!!

    Sometimes I wonder if there is not an orchestrated attempt by somebody to destabilize this economy.
    If so, all that is done in the dark will surely come to light and possibly backfire.
    Be careful of the evil we wish others.

    Alright Mr newly appointed Commissioner, over to you. You said no one is above the law so with the power invested in you, prove it.

    Loretta.
    Our leaders think like you. Rather than looking for the root causes of our problems and finding solutions they look for excuses.

    A short question.
    Don!t you find it strange that in most of these shootings private transport is used to take the injured for medical treatment.?

      Urgency is at play,,plus the ambulance is very skeptical to show up without police presence, because they do not know when the dust have cleared,that is the society we have created for ourselves.
      A while back a gunshot victim while being placed in an ambulance was shot multiple times on the stretcher, assailant pushing aside the emts to finish off victim,,so its for their safety,sorry to say.

    Looks for all purposes the Cat has already left the proverbial bag.It is only now that those assigned to the task of protecting us has started to be a wee bit more proactive in trying to put in place measures that will help prevent the flow of gunsinto Barbados that we are likely to see a reduction in gun violence.With that being said, it is quite obvious to any sensible individuals that there are enough guns already in the Island to arm any rouge force.It will surely be of concern to see whether some of these same weapons and Criminals will raise their ugly heads during the next Election Season. There seem to be the belief that these criminal elements are being taken lightly by some in authority especially when comments to the effect were or are made stating that a number like 26 shootings is a good barometer. Let’s see when 50 or more becomes a serious problem.we are heading to
    to that number faster than “a speeding bullet “?

    As I’ve said it before and I will say it in the presence of the Prime Minister, The Governor General , The Oposition Leader and the Chief Justice The use of the “cat O nime tail is the deterant on our soverign soil of Barbados for public endangerment by use of a fire arm or deadly weapons! You can hate me for saying so but it works! “Oh can’t you see what you’re doing to me”! “Starvation heading towards the Nation”! Do you remember those songs, sold on 45 RPM records? You illiterates are killing your countries economic earner! Please get a brain! Don’t know if you can quite purchase one as you can a hand gun and ammunition!

    Strange that there was a shooting about 2 weeks ago in the PM’s /Deputy PM’s constituencies and it has gone unreported. The victim is still in a serious condition in the QEH.
