St. Lucy man in police custody
Crab Hill community
Police have confirmed that a man is in custody assisting police investigations.
Careful not to state that the man is in custody in relation to Sunday's shooting incidents, the Acting Public Relations Officer for the Royal Barbados Police Force (RBPF), Sargeant Michael Blackman asserted:
"Andre Jackman is currently in police custody assisting with investigations. That is in relation to police investigations that are on-going. He is assisting police with investigations."
Jackman's aliases include 'Lord Evil' and 'Punchies'.
Asked about patrols in the most Northern-parish, Blackman assured that police presence and surveillance have increased in St. Lucy since Sunday.
There was a fatal morning shooting in Crab Hill St. Lucy which took the life of 40-year-old Dexter Lashley while he was a stone-throw away from his residence at Crab Hill #2.
Hours later, near the North Stars cricket grounds in Crab Hill also, a second set of shots rang out, disturbing the peace in the community once again close to 5:00 pm.
On the second occasion, a man and a woman were left nursing gunshot wounds. They were both rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) for medical attention.
When LOOP News visited the Crab Hill community yesterday, Monday, October 1, 2018, most homes were closed and persons were opting not to speak to the media about the shootings.
However, some broke their silence under the cover of anonymity.
