Man hospitalized after Bath Estate shooting

Investigators at the crime scene at Bath Estate
Investigators at the crime scene at Bath Estate

One man is nursing gun shot wounds at the princess Margaret Hospital after a shooting incident at Bath Estate this morning.

Dominica News Online has been unable to confirm this information with the police but a Bath Estate resident told us that at about 9:30 am three loud gunshots were heard in the vicinity of his home. He said he subsequently heard the victim shouting for help and when he looked out of his house, saw masked gunmen who escaped on a motor cycle.

According to the eye witness, shortly afterwards, the ambulance service arrived on the scene and transported the victim to the Princess Margaret Hospital. He told DNO that a┬ánumber of persons in the area were “visibly shaken by this brazen broad day incident.”

We’ve not been able to ascertain the identity of the victim.

At the time of reporting police were still on the scene carrying out their investigations.

    For all those who ridicule my previous comment. The Police can sit down and arrest absolutely nobody and they will still earn a salary. Was only trying to put sense into some of you all heads that in the end we are useless without Police.

    i dont think the problem is the guns, or lack humanity in the minds of the younger ones committing these crimes, the problem is the same as it is around the world. where ever u hav extreme poverty u will hav extreme crimes. No one is going to lay down and die if they are hungry, am not saying the guy who got shot had something the other guys wanted. what i am saying is, if everybody is fed and happy, there is no reason to kill, if Dominica would take care of their own future(youth) better, then and only then you could really see the immense potential for positivity these young men have. No God can save them, cept the god in us all, the helping hand we looking for is at the end of our own arms, not in the government. I hope we learn to good for ourselves before we destroy ouselves the world over. Nothing is wrong with the youth, they are simply reacting to their environment, and if u do not know their environment, if u do not know wat their life is REALLY like, dont judge, its not helping. Nothing is wrong with the youth, but something is wrong.

    Lost for words..
    Still can’t believe that such things are happening in these small communities where each one knows the other..
    Or is it that these communities have suddenly exploded in size that one does not know who his neighbor is,like it use to be once-upon-a-time…

  8. The Facts
    September 25, 2014

    Just when I thought that all was quiet in Dominica, this shooting occurred.
    At that hour of the morning? They had it for him, planned it and probably did not sleep all night waiting for the morning to perform their crime. Did you guys have the nerve to have breakfast? They were masked. It looked like their plan was to kill him.
    It is too bad the onlookers did not get their license plate. I hope they are caught soon.
    Criminals have guts; no hearts and to shoot people with the intent to murder them.
    You must cease utilizing guns. You must cease killing people. You are working your way straight to the dungeon of Satan’s everlasting cauldron of fire for “The V – Fifth Commandment of God is: Thou Shalt Not Kill.” You know it. Yet you do it. Consider what will your lot be and as you age until you die and face God for your eternal judgment. Give this a serious thought and cease your pillage of crimes for your own good.

    the police is not and cannot be always right . when they are wrong they must be made to understand that in an impartial manner we do not want our police to be behaving like outlaws, that is why we wantthem to be on the moral high ground.

    Because we pay their illiterate behinds to do so. Currently the police serve no purpose on the island. Other than interfering with competing drug dealers. I.e. drug dealers who compete with their own illicit activities.

    That does not mean because we need the police that they can kill people how they want. The police need to show they are at a different level than the rebels

    I’m sure that the man did not ride to Bath Estate with the mask on and I’m also certain that some one identified the motor cycle or its registration #. So u see something, say it.

    Folks!! some of us have this thing upside down. We applaud the police doing their jobs because that is their responsibility as Civil Servants – To serve and protect. What we do not like is the police abusing their authority and that the public must expose. We would like a perfect Police Force but in reality that won’t happen. That does not mean we cannot have an excellent Police Force who respect the law and serves the people. E.g Not because you are a Mechanic or a Doctor that does not mean your a Top Class or the best. There are sloppy Mechanics and Sloppy Doctors and you would not go to them. The same apply to sloppy police men that don’t do what is right and give the others a bad name. As a result we need to weed them out but the Police is still responsible to and protect the citizens of the country. We are all humans and we all like to be treated with respect even when at times we don’t deserve. If we express love to our brother and sister on a daily basis there will be no need for abuse.

    • September 25, 2014

      BECAUSE THE ARE PAID ON OUR TAX MONEY!!!

    • Hmm,
      September 25, 2014

      The police is there to help keep Law and Order in place , so they must be called it’s their duty ok . But when they do wrong people have the right to bash and complain . Believe me they do , do wrong they are human right?.

    • BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
      September 25, 2014

      @still watching
      Why call cops even if people complain?? because its their darn duty to do it so they have to whether we cuss them or not. They are being paid to do it so they darn well have to come when we call. and its not like they prevent crime anyways, they always come after the fact. After the crime happens thats when they show up

      What a dumb statement. Is it not the police officers jobs to protect and serve the citizens of the country? Are the police officers in Dominica perfect and can’t do no wrong? The same way persons are held liable for their wrong doings by the laws of the country so should police officers doing wrong be held liable. It’s the only way to have a better Dominica

    • September 25, 2014

      the police are suppose to be servants, protectors and freinds of the people. when they do wrong we have to straighten them up .the public and the police need each other. it is not suppose to be a one sided relationship.

      Who should they call? Are you saying that the police officers should be sent home because they serve no useful service? Their job is to protect and serve and that includes investigating crime, it is not to brutalise people in their custody .

      September 26, 2014

      I agree with you 100%, majority of the people who replied to your comment didn’t read it properly because when Police officers find themselves in problem the public forget that without Police the country would be chaotic but it’s true if you can solve your own issues why call Police?
