Mourners robbed at Ed Gallimore’s houseMonday, February 13, 2012
GUNMEN this afternoon held up and robbed mourners at the home of Ed Gallimore a day after he was shot outside an ATM in New Kingston. The Observer learnt that friends of the former tourism industry executive were at his house offering condolences to his mother when one of the gunmen, pretending to be a friend, walked in, hugged Gallimore’s mother, then pulled a gun and demanded money.
When it became clear to them that there was no money for them to get, they took away people’s cellphones, the Observer learnt.
Gallimore died in hospital this morning after yesterday’s attack which occurred at approximately 3:30 pm.
Police report that Gallimore had withdrawn an undetermined sum of cash from the machine when he was pounced upon by a gunman upon leaving the booth. He was shot and the gunman escaped on a motorcycle.
