A Glen man has become the eighth homicide victim in St. Vincent and the Grenadines this year.

Police have identified the deceased as Keon Scott, a 45-year-old labourer.

Unknown assailants shot and killed Scott around 3:50 p.m. on Saturday in his home community, police say.

Scott has had a number of run-ins with the law and has made national headlines before.

In January 2017, he was jailed for four and a half years for possession of a possession of a Smith & Wesson .38 revolver without a licence on Oct. 10, 2016.

On the same occasion, he was also ordered to spend one year in jail for possession of six rounds of .38 ammunition without a licence.

The sentences ran concurrently but were consecutive to a one-year prison sentence he was already serving for escaping lawful custody at the Serious Offences Court in November 2016

The police are asking person(s) with information about Scott’s death to call 1784-456-1339, 1784-456-1810, 1784-458-4200 or any Police Station in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Persons with information can also speak with any police officer with whom they are comfortable.

All information will be treated confidentially, police say.
