Boxing Day shooting disrupts holiday celebrations

While many Barbadians were able to relax, enjoying two days with friends and family, one St Michael community had this tranquillity disrupted yesterday.

Persons in Well Gap, Cave Hill, St Michael were reportedly socialising at a shop in the area on Boxing Day, when they were approached by a masked gunman who took some of their possessions. 

Loop News also understands that while shots were fired during this incident, no one was injured.

Even though the Royal Barbados Police Force confirmed that there was indeed a shooting incident in the area, they could not provide details at this time and assured that this will be forthcoming later today. 

While the Force reported a peaceful holiday season initially, this apparent robbery would now mar that record.
