Clarks Hill resident ambushed and shot on his own premises


REAL NEWS – Of late, shootings appear to have become a weekly occurrence in Antigua and Barbuda, with a 29-year-old Clarks Hill resident being the country’s most recent victim of a gun crime.

This incident occurred on Tuesday night, September 5, and follows quickly on the shooting of a 58-year-old Bendals man on Sunday night, September 4, in the Yeptons area, and the shooting death of Parham resident Lance “Lenny” Williams on Saturday night, September 2.

Reports say the latest victim was pounced upon by an unidentified gunman as he was entering his own property.

During the incident the gunman discharged multiple shots, hitting the man at least twice – in the upper body and in the leg.

The injured man was rushed to the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre by the Emergency Medical Service (EMS) and is being treated. His condition, at this time, is not known. The motive for the attack is also unclear.

But a similar incident occurred recently when a Briggins man, Chet Lewis, 33, was shot multiple times at his home.

It is alleged that a lone gunman called him out of his apartment; and when he answered the door a rain of bullets greeted him.

This incident occurred on Monday, August 21 shortly after 11 p.m. Lewis has since been discharged from the hospital and is Saud to be recovering well.

Investigations into this matter, as well as two other fatal shootings in Green Bay, are continuing, the Police say, as they pursue a number of leads.

The Police are asking persons with information on any of the recent incidents to contact the nearest station, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) at 462-3913, or Crimestoppers at 800-TIPS (8477).

Meanwhile, residents are growing increasingly concerned about the proliferation of guns in recent times. Calls are being made to the Gaston Browne Administration – and, in particular, the minister responsible for national security, Attorney- General Steadroy “Cutie” Benjamin – to equip the Police with the tools to fight crime and to put mechanisms in place to arrest this worrisome situation.
