Mur­der record in St Vin­cent

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

KINGSTOWN – St Vin­cent and the Gre­nadines’ mur­der rate has reached a record high of 41 fol­low­ing a shoot­ing on Christ­mas Eve night.

The vic­tim An­del Muck­ett died on Christ­mas Day at the Milton Cato Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal in Kingstown where he was be­ing treated for gun­shot in­juries.

Re­ports were that Muck­ett was shot while mak­ing his way from his home in the Smiths Val­ley, Di­a­monds com­mu­nity. He was shot in the head and left leg and col­lapsed sev­eral yards away from where he had been shot. He was transported to the hos­pi­tal where he later died.

The 2017 mur­der count is one more than the coun­try’s pre­vi­ous homi­cide record which was set in 2016. (I Wit­ness News/ News784)
