According to preliminary investigations, on Friday, April 29, 2022, several members of the “Choppins United” Football Team were walking along the Golden Vale Public Road after the completion of a football game between the “1989 Hill Side Ballers” Football Team. The game was played at the Calliaqua Playing Field.
Reports indicate that at about 9:30 P.M., sounds of gunshots emanated from within the vicinity where members of the Choppins Football Team were walking.
As a result, some persons advanced in the direction of the gunshots and discovered Mayers and Duke with what appeared to be gunshot wounds about their bodies.
The police were informed and promptly arrived on the scene of the incident. Mayers was later pronounced dead on the scene by the District Medical Officer. On Saturday, April 30, 2022, Duke died at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH).
Investigations revealed that during the football match, an argument broke out between some members of both teams and threats were uttered.
One male suspect was in police custody assisting with the investigations but was subsequently released pending further investigations.
