Police are investigating the shooting death of a 57-year-old resident of Morne D’or, Anse La Raye.
Reports are that Hippolyte Glasgow, a former barman for Sandals resorts, was sitting at the side of the road about 09:40 a.m. Monday, when two unmasked men opened fire on him.
The police said in a statement that Glasgow sustained a wound to the chest area, reportedly by the two males who were fleeing from Elcock’s supermarket after an alleged robbery.
Just minutes before he was shot and killed, the Morne D’or resident had left the supermarket after purchasing flour.
Residents in the area believe Glasgow was targeted because he may have been able to identify the criminals.
The police said this is the twenty-ninth homicide for 2016.
