A man to whom the High Court recently granted bail on a burglary charge was shot and killed by an unknown assailant in Kingstown on Wednesday.
The man, 19-year-old Darren Davy, also known as “Precious”, of Pole Yard, Arnos Vale, was shot in the vicinity of the BRAGSA office on Lower Bay Street around 1:35 a.m. police said.
He was killed hours before the Court of Appeal would deny his father, Aaron John, a reduction in his four-year sentence for beating his girlfriend, while she had a restraining order against him.
Police said Davy was shot to the left side of his face by some unknown assailant.
He was rushed to the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital where he subsequently succumbed to his injuries.

A post mortem is scheduled to be conducted on Davy’s body, and police say their investigations continue.Davy’s death could be classified as the second murder in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year.
