Police and Emergency personnel lift victim onto the back of a government vehicle

One man is in police custody in connection with a shooting which occurred in Roseau this morning, DNO has learned.

A man was shot in Roseau sometime after 9:00 am on the corner of Kennedy Avenue and Kings Lane. Several gun shots were heard and one individual was reported fleeing from the scene. A government vehicle presumably in the role of an ambulance, arrived to transport the victim to the hospital.

While details of the incident have not been officially released, DNO has learned that the shooter’s face was covered.

We also understand that the man was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at the Princess Margaret Hospital.

A large crowd quickly enveloped the area while police on the scene attempted to respond to this development. The police have since cordoned off the area to vehicle and foot traffic.

DNO will continue to follow this story.
