THE SOUNDS OF gunfire shattered the still of Wednesday night, causing residents of Black Rock, St Michael and surrounding areas to throw themselves on the ground in fear.
Sources say shots started close to midnight and continued for what some said was half an hour, with a power blackout occurring during that period.
“It just so happen that a generator went out at that time and came back on just about the time it ended,” one resident said.
Reports indicate the sounds were of automatic fire as well as powerful booming shots, perhaps from hand cannons. (Barbados Nation)
