Gunplay scare at fete
A FLURRY OF GUNSHOTS at a party in the wee hours of Thursday has left one homeowner shaken.
Harry Butcher, who leases out an entertainment spot behind his home which is diagonally opposite the now in-ruins Porters Sugar Factory in St James, called in investigators after initially discovering two bullet holes in his shed roof.
But a subsequent closer inspection on Saturday revealed another roof, this one close to the bar, had been stitched with a number of holes. In all, 14 bullet holes stand as mute testimony to the gunplay that went on at the party.
Butcher, who lives with his wife in his house to the front of the entertainment place, said he rented the spot in April to a man who operated the establishment under the name JJ’s Bar.
