Police to deal with trouble spots


Share post:

Commissioner of Police Darwin Dottin last night promised an “appropriate response” to ease the fears and tension that have engulfed City trouble spots of Chapman Lane and New Orleans.
Dottin spoke to the WEEKEND?NATION, five hours after police descended on New Orleans, removing barricades erected by fearful residents to keep out intruders following Wednesday’s shooting incident that left three youths hurt.
The Commissioner labelled the violent episode as an “undesirable development” and gave the assurance that steps would be taken for the protection and safety of residents. He stopped short of giving a time frame.
There were no gun shots piercing the air in New Orleans yesterday, but a tense calm prevailed as a two vehicle police patrol arrived on the scene just after 2 p.m.
Minutes later, the officers were seen lifting away the two large posts and two tables that were placed in the roadway by youths, who claim they have been targetted by a gang from nearby Chapman Lane.
