Share post:

A FAMILY IS today mourning the loss of a son and brother after the usual quiet of Carrington Village, St Thomas, was shattered by gunfire shortly before 9:30 p.m. Saturday that left one man dead.
Don Cox, 32, of Lion Castle in the same parish, was among four people shot, according to police.
After what residents described as the firing of “about 50 shots”, Cox  died at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) from two gunshot injuries, one to his head and the other to his chest.
Two teenaged sisters – Khadija Blackman, 18, and Bree-ann Blackman, 16, both of Vault Road, Welchman Hall – were shot while scampering from the scene of pandemonium.
Yesterday afternoon, Khadija was undergoing surgery at the QEH while Bree-ann was at home in pain, said their distraught mother who was on her way to the hospital and asked that her name not be used.  (RL/RJ)
