Homicide detectives are investigating the death of a 49-year-old man who was shot and killed while he slept at his home, the second such killing in about 10 days.
Head of the Criminal Investigation Department, Assistant Superintendent of Police Syndney James, told I-Witness News that Phillip “Super Cat” Qusahie was shot and killed around 2 a.m. Wednesday while asleep at his home in Glen.
Police are yet to make an arrest and have not offered any theories surrounding the killing of the 49-year-old man, which brings to five the number of suspected murders in St. Vincent and the Grenadines so far this year.
Corporal Kasanki Quow is heading the investigation.
In the other case of someone being shot in their sleep this month, Earl Jack, 26, died at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital on Feb. 17 after an assailant opened his bedroom window and shot him in the head while he slept at his home in Great House, Lowmans Hill.
Last September, Jimmy Jack, a police sergeant, was shot and injured by an unknown assailant as he slept at a police facility in Calliaqua.
