Alleged robber shot and killed in St VincentMonday, March 17, 2014
KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent (CMC) – A 24-year-old man, who was on bail for robbing an insurance worker in January, has been shot and killed, police said.
They said Kwesi Ryan died in his mother’s arms after he was shot several times by a masked assailant early Monday.
His mother, Brenda Ryan was not injured after the gunman entered her yard firing several shots at the victim.
“He died in front of my eyes. I can’t explain to anybody how I feel,” said Ryan, who, like her son, were trapped against a galvanize fencing as the gunman repeatedly shot at them.
Kwesi had been charged with another man for allegedly robbing the insurance worker of a bag, containing cash and cheques as well as a 9mm pistol and four rounds of ammunition.
The preliminary inquiry was due to start on June 2.
“I really can’t say if his death is connected to that …” Kwesi’s father, Maxim “Gurkie” Ryan told reporters.
