White­hall man shot in the back

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - News -

A White­hall, St Michael man is nurs­ing in­juries to­day af­ter he was shot in the lower back on Wed­nes­day night.

Po­lice re­ports said 32-year-old Peter Toppin was rushed to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Hos­pi­tal in a pri­vate ve­hi­cle af­ter he was shot while at White­hall Road.

A res­i­dent said Toppin was walk­ing through a track which con­nects White­hall No. 1 with White­hall No. 2 when he was set upon by three other men.

“At night, the track is very dark and it was only he com­ing through there. So they would have had to know he was com­ing through there,” the res­i­dent said.

The res­i­dent was un­sure of the time the in­ci­dent took place but added “a good set of peo­ple were out there be­cause a guy at the cor­ner has a gym and peo­ple were there sit­ting down by the gym and some were now walk­ing com­ing down the gap at the same time,” the res­i­dent said.

Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the in­ci­dent which oc­curred around 6:50 p.m. on Wed­nes­day. They are ask­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact them at any po­lice sta­tion.
