Family shattered by the gun


Share post:

A St James family was irrevocably split in the latest act of gun violence in Barbados.

Danielle Brathwaite, 27, said a gunman robbed her of a loving partner and their son of a dedicated father in Neipaul Trotman, who was 31.

She said she was nearby at their Fitts Village home when tragedy struck on Wednesday.

The assailant shot Trotman while their two-year-old son Neikobe was in his arms, leaving the boy distraught.

Brathwaite drove her critically injured partner to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital herself and stayed strong throughout the ordeal but reluctantly faced reality when Trotman was pronounced dead later that night.

“I couldn’t believe it. We have been together since I was 16 and we fought to have a baby. We had our hard times and now we were finally starting to do things for ourselves . . . ,” she said. (CA)
