RECENT ACTIONS by brazen gunmen have become a worrying concern for the Royal Barbados Police Force.
This assessment has come after a man was shot onboard a packed ZR van in Collymore Rock yesterday, sending passengers scampering for their lives.
According to police public relations officer Inspector David Welch, the man was shot in the back by an unknown assailant just before 1 p.m. in the area of the Sagicor and Equity Insurances Limited buildings.
The incident occurred on the Silver Hill route taxi which was on its way out of town.
Welch said that after being shot, the man ran before collapsing on the sidewalk a short distance away.
The victim, whose identity was not immediately known, was rushed to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, where he underwent emergency surgery.
