PM condemns shooting
(ZIZ News) — Prime Minister Dr. Hon Timothy Harris has condemned the weekend shooting on Nevis that has left one woman dead and another injured.
In a statement issued on Tuesday the Prime Minister offered his sympathies to the families of the victims and said what made the shooting even more shocking is that the shooting occurred during the Easter weekend.
He said “In shocking contrast with the values espoused during this season of reverence, an abominable attack on two women occurred in Cotton Ground, Nevis yesterday morning. The vehicle they were driving in was shot at multiple times, resulting in the senseless, tragic death of one (28-year-old Morella Webbe) and injuries sustained by the other (34-year-old Sonia Grant).”
The Prime Minister said his government condemns what he calls an” abhorrent, barbaric act” and he’s asking anyone with information to contact the police.
He said “this heinous incident serves as a lurid reminder that we all need to band together and look out for one another to stamp out the scourge of crime. Yesterday, crime affected other people, but today or tomorrow it can impact upon any one of us.”
Prime Minister Harris added that it is also incumbent on the nation to stand with our law and security officers because they stand up for us each and every day on the frontlines in the war on crime.
