Boy dies after drive-by shooting
A 16-YEAR-OLD SCHOOLBOY, shot in the head Tuesday night, died hours afterwards to become Barbados’ 15th murder victim yesterday.
Shakane Damon Worrell, a fifth form student of Lester Vaughan Secondary School, apparently was an innocent bystander when he was gunned down in a drive-by shooting less than 100 feet away from his home at Pounders Gap, Westbury Road, St Michael.
Eyewitness reports indicated Worrell was liming by a friend’s house when the incident occurred just before midnight.
According to some residents who did not want to be identified, the shooting resulted from an ongoing dispute between two factions. (TS)
