Sergeant in Grand Bazaar shootout dies
One of the officers involved in a shootout at Grand Bazaar last Wednesday has died.
Police confirm that Sgt Darryl Honore succumbed to injuries sustained in the shootout at 10.25 pm on Sunday, at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex.
The altercation at the mall's car park stemmed from a love triangle involving Honore, his wife and a corporal.
Eyewitness reports indicate that the woman at the centre of the love triangle accompanied the corporal to a fast food restaurant at Grand Bazaar, while Honore followed.
Honore continued to follow the two and shouted at the corporal, "you make meh loss meh wife and meh house and I ain't taking that tonight".
He drew his firearm, prompting the corporal to do the same.
A total of 28 spent 9mm shells were recovered from the scene of the shooting.
The investigation into the incident ordered by Acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams continues. The probe is being led by Supt. Sheldon David of the Northern Division, with oversight by the Professional Standards Bureau.
