Three charged after alleged shoot out with police


The three men who were allegedly involved in a shooting incident with the police on Monday are now charged.

On Thursday police jointly charged 24-year-old Jaeviania Simon of Freemans Village along with 24-year-old Asonie Benjamin and 19-year-old Tyricke John both of All Saints with breaking and larceny, shooting with intent and two counts each of possession of firearm and ammunition.

On Monday, police responded to a report of a break-in at All Saints Secondary School when they were fired upon by the accused. They were later apprehended and taken into custody. Three firearms were also seized during the investigation. All three accused are expected before the court early next week.

Meanwhile, Acting Commissioner of Police Atlee Rodney commended his officers and others who supported the police for their timely response in this matter.

Members of the general public are also urged to be always on their alert and be extremely cautious going into this Christmas season.

  1. Something tells me these alleged criminals are probably from either Jamaica or Haiti. It’s time for Antigua to withdraw from CARICOM and stop letting these kind of criminals living in our country.

  2. @Jane Doe that had to be sarcasm because I refuse to believe anybody with rasta in their name would be so ignorant.

  3. These three young men need HELP! At such ages, why on Earth are they engaging in such criminal behaviour? wow! Glad they were apprehended. It could have ended much worse. How dare them.

  4. That so called real rastaman is just an internet troll with nothing better to do with his life: here is a newflash for you Antiguans commit crime here in Antigua and aboard don’t know what kinda rasta he is cause no real rasta praise Chinese like this person does. Just another highly paid person who’s daily job is to troll the internet.

    • The only troll I see here is you. Just because I speak logic and truth, you think I’m a troll? LOL.

      Yes, I strongly believe that China is a good partner for Antigua now and in the future.

      I know you like the former slave holding countries like the USA and the EU, but I don’t.

  5. From all indications, these youngsters are Antiguans but the reality is, whether Antiguans or not, they’re in need rehabilitation through punishment!!!

  6. All a dem a Antiguan if they weren’t they would have stated which countries they from like they always do. Only time they don’t state which country they from is when they are Antiguan. I read enough news ever since to pick up tht small fact.

  7. What is going on with some of these young people. Why don’t get get a job and go to work like other people, and make their money honestly. Looks like it’s time for the police to shoot big time. Clean up the island.
