Police are probing the shooting death of Recardo “Smokey” Roberts, a younger brother of Hans King, press secretary to Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves.
Reports say that Roberts, a CD vendor, said to be in his 20s, died in a hail of bullet in Kingstown Park Thursday night.
The details surrounding the shooting are still not clear, but I-Witness News understands that the shots were fired from a car occupied by masked persons.
Police are said to have recovered more than 20 spent shell casings at the scene.
This country has registered a number of shooting and other homicides over the past few weeks.
On Sept. 5, Velorne Samuel, the secretary at the Family Court, died after being shot multiple times while doing her laundry at her home in Evesham around 8 p.m.
