Man shot dead in La Horquetta

A 30-year-old man is dead following a shooting incident on Saturday morning in La Horquetta.

The deceased has been identified as Kevin Scott aka “Calcutta”.

According to police reports, around 10:40 am today, Scott was in a hammock near his home at Phase Seven, La Horquetta, when a white vehicle pulled up alongside him.

The occupants of the car reportedly opened fire.

Fearful for his life, Scott attempted to flee the scene and managed to run a short distance away.

However, he was shot several more times and collapsed on a grassy area off the roadway.

The assailants then escaped.

Scott, police said, was well known to them as they had received information that he had several disagreements with persons in the community as well as in other areas.

More on this as it becomes available.
