  3. The old saying goes…there are 2 sides to every story and if you search you would find an 3rd one. Rarely do I comment about these situations, but I felt compelled. There have been other incidents where this young man has been accused of other shootings where he was found innocent. The media didnt report that the police started the incident. Or was it proven that it was actually their bullet that may have struck the lady? Matters not, such shooting should never have taken place in the open. There is blame to he had on both sides.

  6. I think the police should tell us what happened but also coming to the media with all the details can be detrimental to them capturing him. Also the police are trained in defensive shooting saying this to say that they only open fire when fired upon. Hope the young lady recovers well but its pretty obvious that this guy is involved in something and its sad to know that people are willingly helping this fugitive

  7. im all for police capturing criminals, makes me sleep better at night but it must be done right. it matters not who shot that lady we could be reading about more innocent casualties.. do we just call them collateral damage an get our man.. chased him, shot at him, an innocent lady got hurt an he still got away. i dont see how that helps the situation…….

  8. So why they chasing him again? Last night them had gun shot or two. two houses down from mine, they seemed to have stopped a car. The police ain even say lets tell the people in the community what happened if everything safe. Whats the secret? He wanted in connection with the shooting of the woman, but he only shoot her cause they were shooting at him so once again Whats he really wanted for?

  9. Some people in antigua act like they didnt go school. blaming government for man act. Government tell them to have shoot out with police? Government tell them to go rob, thief kill or help destroy mankind? ya’ll need to stop the foolishness. i cant believe big people act like this.. If u child get a buss head you blame government, tell ya child keep the heck out of problem.. Parents for today encourage their children in these acts then blaming government when they get caught.. ya’ll needa stop ya’ll ignorance. train a child in the way you want him to go, so when he become old he will not depart from it, Guidance thats all the youths of today need

  11. Is he another Jamaican, Santo Domingan or a deportee? Because all I have seen in recent months is Antiguans saying that the crime is mostly caused by foriegn nationals and/or deportees. And yet when I read the court assizes in the Thursday issues of the Observer what I mostly read is Antiguan offenders. Just saying…
