Not the spent shells mentioned in the story.

(BARBADOS NATION) — Police have recovered more than 120 shells from the scene of one shooting incident.

This was revealed by Attorney General Dale Marshall, as he reiterated that not only Government, but every individual must play a part in arresting the scourge of rising gunplay and violence in the country.

He was speaking during the video launch of an anti-violence song on Saturday evening in Melrose, St Thomas.

Marshall, under whose portfolio the Royal Barbados Police Force now falls, was responding to a call from resident Elderson Smith to tighten the borders. They were at the Cloudy Chill Spot, for the launch of Open Ya Eyes featuring Joe Cloudy and Aja.

“The police officers told me recently in a street, a very short street, shorter than 45 metres, they picked up over 100 spent shells in one night,” he said without naming the community.
