Two shooting incidents in one day

shooting_incident_300Police are investigating two shooting incidents in which three men have been injured.

Both incidents occurred on September 1.

Police Public Relations Officer ASP Claude Weekes told DBS News that one of the incidents occurred in Newton at about 5:35pm when Rufus Thomas and Bill Jean Jacques sustained injuries to their hands and other parts of their bodies. One man is assisting with investigations in connection with that incident.

In the second incident, Luggie Lockhart at Stockfarm was shot by two armed, masked men riding by on scooters. Lockhart was at the roadside at the time.

The two men escaped.

“No one has yet been formerly charged or arrested for this shooting incident,” Weekes said.

    I guess these bullets remained dried, in spite of everything else being wet. It’s a lawless country. If the shooters are caught today, they’ll receive bail tomorrow. A sick place

    jamesd and Just Blaze, as I read the article I thought the same as your comment. I expect others will state the same. We are of one mind in this one. I hope they are caught.
    What a shame! These gun-toting and runners have no conscience. I thought, it is too bad tropical storm Erika did not eradicate them from the D/can society. These types are the ones who should have been affected and erased from the face of Dominica.
    God knows who they are. One day, they will pay for their wickedness. Their day is coming and probably sooner than they expect.
