In Green Hill Wednesday night, two females were left in tears.

A mother lost her son and a little girl was forced to grow up without her father as another man fell to gun violence in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Just six weeks into the year, the country has recorded its fourth homicide…

The latest victim is Kelique Rock aka Brinks, of Green Hill, who was gunned down in his yard.

Initially reports were that the 27-year-old man was sitting at the side of the road with relatives when gunshots rang out around 7 p.m.

Apparently unsure about the direction from which the gunshots were coming, Rock ran towards what should have been the safety of his home.

But, apparently, his assailant had been shooting from alongside a neighbouring building and what should have been Rock’s fortress became a trap.

Scores of residents stood outside the cordon as police processed the scene but when the cordon was lifted, they went in for a closer look…

Rock’s mother shouted for him from outside the undertaker’s van that transported his body to the morgue.

Other people scrub his blood for the walls of his house.

 It is not the first time that Rock is making news headlines as in April 2019, the then 23-year-old Rock was charged with attempted murder.

The charge stemmed from an incident in which over 20 gunshots were allegedly fired at Kemanie Spencer, a 32-year-old farmer, also of Green Hill.

Rock was granted EC$30,000 bail on the charge, but iWitness News is unsure about its status before the court.

Rock’s death comes four days after the shooting death of Jenson Aubrey Hamilton, a 55-year-old labourer of Gibson Corner.

Hamilton was gunned down in his home community about 7:20 p.m. on Saturday.

iWitness News is unaware of any links between the shootings.

So far this year, St. Vincent and the Grenadines has recorded an average of about one homicide per week, mirroring the homicide rate in 2023, when the country recorded a record 52 murders.

  1. Mothers do you know the behaviour
    of your children ? It is written, train up the child in the way of the Lord , so when they are old, they will never depart from those teaching.

  2. You play stupid games what do you expect? Stupid prizes….sorry they had to eat your food and break your plate. Rip me G

  3. It is reasonable to assume that the victim was a gunslinger. You live by the sword you die by the sword is an old adage. His chickens have come home to roost and is now sitting in the mortuary. It is a warning for the rest of us who are yet alive, especially young men. Live your life purposely. Now you left others in mourning especially if you have kids. When you live like that you create mayhem for citizens who have to look over their shoulders.

  4. Always sad to hear of these incidents. Prayer yes, but as a nation we have to go back to the drawing boards: community development initiatives; conflict resolution strategies; interventions by leaders and elders within community groups; a reschooling of values and best practices and so on….but our understanding of divine justice and the purpose of life are fundamental! Where is the active tri partite approach towards community development? Community leaders? A new SVG needs all of us. A changed mindset will help us to refocus on so many things. For instance: One can develop a changed mindset as to how to deal with family conflicts without the use of guns, cutlasses, sticks, broken bottles, barbed wire and the like!!
