The Dominica Police Force has strongly condemned the recent acts of violence resulting in the death of two male adults.
Lester Charles, 39 of Fond Cole was shot to death on Friday 13, 2022 in Yam Piece less than 36 hours after the shooting death of Ron Garth Jolly popularly known as Burn Brain.
The two recent killings have brought the total homicide in Dominica to 8, four resulting from the use of firearms.
“The police force condemns these violent behaviours of the public and is committed to employ every means necessary to address these crimes,” Deputy Police Chief Lincoln Corbette said. “These killings must stop, no one is above the law and there must be other means by which members of the public can resolve their differences.”
According to Corbette, taking the life of another is not the answer.
“We will aggressively pursue these perpetrators utilizing all the means at our disposal with a view of bringing them to justice,” he stated.
The police force is also soliciting the assistance of the general public to provide information regarding the fatal shootings.
The police can be reached at the Criminal Investigation Department 2665164, 2665165, 911 or 1-800-4486.
Corbette extended deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.
