Police are investigating the second gun-related killing in East St. Goerge in less than a week.

Chesley Dowers, 31, of Calliaqua was shot in the neighbouring community of Golden Vale Saturday night.

He is said to have died on the way to hospital.

Dowers’ death comes three days after accused drug runner Godfrey Cumberbatch, 42, was shot and killed in Glen.

Cumberbatch, who was on EC$100,000 bail, was scheduled to appear in court this Thursday for the preliminary inquiry into a 2,000-pound marijuana bust on Feb. 20.

Five other men are charged in connection with that drug bust.

It was not immediately clear if there is any connection between the killings.
