MANDEVILLE, Manchester — A man who was the victim of a shooting here last month was shot and killed last night.
Dead is Richard Swaby otherwise called “Six thousand” of a Bethel Street address in Greenvale.
The twenty-four-year-old labourer was killed at about 8:30pm on Ward Avenue police say.
Reports are that on October 20 he was shot in the left side of his mouth and in his thigh on Brigade Crescent.
He reportedly refused to give any information to the police when they visited him in hospital.
Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) of the Area Three Police Division Derrick Cochrane said that Swaby was believed to be a member of a gang and was allegedly shot by one of his cronies last month.
Cochrane said that Swaby was reporting to the police station on condition of bail on gun related charges.
Last night’s shooting, he said, may have been gang related.
