POLICE HAVE CONFIRMED a second person was shot in the same incident which claimed the life of a St Michael man this morning.

But they have not revealed the identity of the man who is said to be in serious condition at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital

The shooting took place in Spooners Hill, St Michael around 5:15 a.m. where Eagle Hall resident Jermaine Williams lost his life.

There was also damage to property.

According to residents, Williams was among scores at a party in the district when gunshots rang out around 5 a.m. They said the crowd dispersed but when they returned, they saw Williams’ body lying in a pool of blood in the road.  

Messages of sympathy poured in on the Nation Barbados’ facebook page, including one friend of the deceased who wrote: “Lord know this burn my heart cuz this is wa I open my eyes to this morning another friend gone. Maine Williams r.i.p I still can’t believe this”. (PR/SAT)
