YOUNG MEN, some in their teens, are being used by drug lords to carry out executions in Barbados.

Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith also disclosed that of the 12 gun-related murders committed so far this year, “the vast majority was committed by persons between 15 and 29 years”.

He added: “That is a worrying trend and it calls for not only the police but for other social interventions as well.”

Griffith, addressing a Press briefing yesterday, said those in leadership roles in the drug culture coerced young Barbadian males to get involved in these murders.
