Man Shot Dead In Dennery


A man succumbed to multiple gunshot injuries in Dennery on Monday night, taking the year’s homicide toll to 27.

The incident occurred at Aux Leon.

According to initial reports, the deceased, identified as thirty-seven-year-old Asher Nelson,  sustained gunshot injuries in a residence in the community.

A medical practitioner at the OKEU Hospital later pronounced him dead.

The latest homicide occurred amid continuing police investigations into a fatal shooting in Vieux Fort on Monday morning that claimed the life of Ricardo Wilson, alias ‘Go Fast’.

The previous day in Babonneau, at about 10:20 pm, a resident reported the discovery of a body at Paix Bouche with severe lacerations to the face and body.

  1. Pierre, that clown, continues issuing bail to individuals caught with firearms. He is releasing those gunmen to further destabilize their communities. This is no time for experimentation, he needs to quit…like yesterday.

    1. Violent crime is deterrence for prospective visitors (tourism is the main product).
    2. Serious injuries take a toll on limited medical resources.
    3. Many defendants on bail rearm and continue to ply their trade.
    4. Police spend valuable time investigating re-offenders. Time that could be spent on other cases.
    5. Suspected informers and tipsters are put at risk. They can be intimidated thus affecting the outcome of cases.
    6. Reduces possibility of public cooperation. Fear of reprisals.
    7. Negatively affects quality of life… especially in small communities.
    8. Gun crime can destroy a tourist market. (future)
    9. Experienced criminals provide mentorship to younger easily influenced youngsters.
    10. A subtle message is conveyed that gun crime has minimal repercussions.
