  1. Mmm they start rob from early age kids like these should not be able to walk the street again, because a them same one turn gun man.

  2. The doctor do well to assist he before ambulance reach. Same how he can think to go rob instead get himself a proper job to maintain himself and more that’s the only thing he can think about at his young man??? He na even lost he parents feature yet. I have no remorse for ROBBERS, RAPIST,AND MURDERERS 0 tolerance for bullshit they know wrong from right. CHUUUUPPZZZ.

  3. It’s truly sad at such a young age, a mind has been developed for criminal activity.

    I pray, it’s a well learnt lesson that crime dose not pay.
    I hope he realize, that he was given a second chance in life. Hope you become a better man in life.

    Let this be a warning to the young and old. Buisness owners are arming themselves and there’re not afraid to cut you down…

  4. Whenever there is a failed robbery and the alleged robber get shot in the process and still alive, the owner should stand over him and finish him. These are the guys who will torment Antigua in time to come with robberies. Mabe he learn that from home

  5. Young people have no shame or morals as long as he live he will remember this day his life could have been need by his stupidity actions!!!!
