Three Dead, One Injured In Barbados Mayhem

Amid celebrations to mark Barbados’ 53rd Independence anniversary, a deadly sword attack at Walkers Terrace, St Andrew, has left three men dead and one seriously injured, local reports on Saturday said.

Barbados Today identified the dead as  Cecil “Dwayne” Webb, Terry Small and Vincentian Jeffneil Browne.

According to the publication, a seventy year old man, Cuthbert Mayers, was receiving medical attention at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Police public relations officer Rodney Inniss  was quoted as telling the media media at the scene that around 8:40 a.m., officers at District F Police Station received a call from a woman who indicated that her common-law husband had sustained a number of chops about his body and appeared to be lifeless.

Inniss said when police responded to the scene and confirmed that the man was dead, they were soon summoned just a few hundred yards away from the first incident where they also discovered the bodies of two other males.

“Whether the incidents were connected or not, we are still investigating and that’s the stage we are at. We have spoken to family members. There are a lot of family members and friends in this area and obviously they are distraught,” Inniss said.
