A man in his twenties sustained gunshot wounds while walking along the road in Cul de Sac, Castries, on Tuesday.

  1. “Tuesday”? What month? What year? someone reading this a year from now will know when the incident happened? just saying we need to be detailed when reporting the news because it’s serious business.

  2. I am asking again, what is the outcome of the numerous gun cases? When will they go to trial? Why is the public not hearing anything pertaining to these cases?
    Common magistrates, tell us what all you are doing.

  3. Again, I am complaining/concerned about why the public needs to have an image of a firearm pointed at them for this segment of the paper. You want us to be numb to crime? You want us to be accustomed to firearms pointed at us? You want us to be traumatized every time we try to read this Newsource. Who is the editor insisting this visual is the best approach?!

    Please do we need an image.
