ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Less than a week after the murder of mother-of-five Susan Powell, yet another shooting has taken place in the Heritage Quay tourist hub.
Twenty-three-year-old MacMillan Roberts is nursing multiple gunshot wounds in hospital today, after a 2 am shooting.
According to a police press release, the Radio Range man and friends were standing in the vicinity of the General Post Office, on Lower High Street, when a lone gunman, wearing a black hooded shirt allegedly ran up to MacMillan and opened fire.
The victim was shot several times in the back, before the assailant—whose face was concealed—fled the scene, towards the vicinity of King’s Casino.
MacMillan is reported to be in stable condition. However, his wounds are said to be serious, requiring immediate surgery.
The police are currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
