Tribune Staff Reporter


A 27-year-old man was shot to death while waiting for a bus early this morning, bringing the country’s murder count to 32 for the year.

Police report that around 6am, the man was standing near a bus stop on Strachans Boulevard, off Soldier Road, when he was approached by a male with a handgun and shot multiple times. The suspect fled on foot while the victim died at the scene.

Police say they have no motive for the crime but their investigations continue.

The murder comes 36 hours after another 27-year-old man, Alfred Renaldo Munnings Ferguson, was shot to death outside a friend’s home on West Avenue. Police have arrested four people, including a Defence Force officer, in connection with that incident. Another man, who was injured during the shooting, is said to be in stable condition in hospital.

Anyone with information on any of these homicides is asked to contact police at 911 or 919, the Central Detective Unit at 502-9991 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 328-tips.
