A Progressive Liberal Party (PLP) campaign worker was stabbed to death outside a PLP constituency office in Elizabeth Estates yesterday after he got into an argument with a man known to him, police said.
ASP Audley Peters said yesterday that there was no evidence to indicate that the killing was politically motivated.
He said the two men knew each other well.
The murder happened shortly after 7 p.m. on Antigua Street, Peters said.
The victim, who was in his late 30s, was stabbed in his chest and died at the scene, he said.
Peters said police have a man in custody assisting with the murder.
A visibly shaken Zane Lightbourne, the PLP’s candidate for Yamacraw, identified the victim as his campaign worker.
“I was at their house recently and I just saw him earlier this evening before we went into the community,” he said at the scene last night.
“He was a very helpful young man. He was always ready to help.”
In a statement, Lightbourne said, “We were shocked and saddened to lose one of our campaign volunteers to a violent crime today.
“We offer our most sincere condolences to his family.”
