Christ Church man shot and killed
A 30-year-old Christ Church man succumbed to gunshot injuries at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) today.
Police say around 8:20 a.m., they received a report from a man who stated his brother was shot about his body, while along the roadway at Silver Sands.
The deceased has since been identified as Jamal Clarke of Bourne’s Land.
His father Irwin Clarke told Nation News he saw Jamal last night at home, but he left after 6 a.m. to go to Skills Training.
Irwin said he was told one of his sons had been shot, but he did not see anything when he checked. Soon after, he received a call from Jamal’s twin informing him that his brother was shot twice and they were at the hospital. Not long after, he called again to say Jamal had passed away.
“I can’t tell you up to now what happened,” he said.
Jamal, who has one daughter just months old, was taken to the QEH by private vehicle and pronounced dead on arrival.
Police are appealing to anyone who can provide any information pertaining to this incident to kindly contact Police emergency at 211, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIPS (8477), Oistins Police Station at 418-2612 or any Police Station. (PR/SAT)
