Shooting at Marchand

Police are investigating a shooting incident which occurred this evening at Black Mallet, Marchand.

According to reports, a male individual identified as Kelly Joseph was hit in the groin area by gunfire at around 8:PM.

The circumstances of the shooting were unclear.

The latest incident comes in the wake of reports that on Wednesday night, a male individual sustained gunshot wounds when assailants opened fire at him.

In a separate incident on Sunday night, two men on a scooter are reported to have shot 23 year old Kimbert Lynch as he sat on the railing of the Black Mallet bridge.

The men are said to have engaged Lynch in conversation before shooting him.

The young man later succumbed to his injuries.

Concerned residents of Marchand believe that the shootings are all connected.

“It is a war that’s going on there,” one resident told the Times, adding that people who live in the area are bracing themselves for more gun violence.

    All this over a bike. Y’all need to see people things and leave them alone. All this is not called for and innocent people have to pay for it.

    Come on. Some people in the community really trying to make the place safer for everyone. It is unfair that the rest of the community must suffer because of the callous acts of a few. You want your so called war? Fine go in the desert away from innocent people and do it there. I totally agree that more police presence is needed to let these miscreants know this will not be accept. Yes #EraseTheStigma.

    Marchand as a community have come together to help change the way we live. Let’s keep that going and stand against the violence. Let the criminals know it will not be accepted. Today is a criminal, tomorrow an innocent bystander Lets not wait for that moment. Stand with Marchand to keep everyone safe.
