The victim of Sunday night’s shooting in Wilton’s Yard has died, law enforcement officials have reported.
The deceased has been identified as Stephen Francis, alias ‘Face’.
According to reports, he was shot about 7.30 pm Sunday night and taken to Victoria Hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Nineteen homicides have so far been recorded for this year.
Just last week, Police Commissioner, Severin Moncherry, said that the new strategies and plans of the force had resulted in a lowering of the homicide rate so far this year.
“We are hoping that we will continue to keep it down and my aim is to keep it down to under 25 this year,” he told reporters last week.
