Fox Hill man shot to death
A 29-year-old Fox Hill man was shot to death and two others were seriously injured when a gunman opened fire during an altercation outside of a bar early Saturday, police said.
Head of the Central Detective Unit (CDU) Superintendent Paul Rolle said the shooting incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. at the Corner Pocket Bar on St. James Road off Kemp Road.
Rolle said the incident unfolded after words were exchanged between two groups of men in the bar. The argument, he said, eventually ended up outside the club where there was an exchange of gunshots. One man was fatally shot and two others were seriously injured.
“One man has since been released from hospital. The other man is detained in serious condition,” said Rolle, who added that police are following significant leads in the matter.
This latest murder has pushed the country’s murder count to 110.
Rolle is also encouraging people to learn how to resolve conflict without taking matters into their own hands.
“We (police officers) do not like this practice of people taking matters into their own hands. That is what we (police) are here for. We encourage people to contact the police whenever they are facing a conflict. We can help them resolve whatever it is,” he said.
