St Vincent and the Grenadines recorded another homicide last night when Carlmore Edwards better known as “shortman” was shot and killed sometime around 10:30pm (Tuesday 8th December) in the vicinity of the Redemption Sharpes playing field.
Reports indicate that Edwards was shot with a semi-automatic weapon multiple times after he attempted to flee the area, upon seeing a number of masked gunmen exiting a car.
Residents in the community are of the opinion that Edwards was not the person who was meant to be killed. “Ah the wrong man them kill”, said one villager.
The deceased is originally from Petit Bordel in the constituency of North Leeward, but was living in the Kingstown Park area.
