    BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – THE twin-island Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis mourns the death of another of its sons who died following a shooting incident in West Farm.

     

    Dead is 19-year-old Jamone Hanley who was gunned down last night (July 9) a short distance from his West Farm home at approximately 11:55.

     

    On arrival at the scene, SKNVibes observed the lifeless body of Hanley lying below the stairway of an apartment building known as ‘The Long House’ with three gunshot wounds to his back, one to his buttocks and one to his neck.

     

    One resident of the area told this media house that she was within her home when she heard the sound of automatic gunfire coming from the area where the apartment building is situated.

     

    The woman said when she arrived at the building she was surprised to learn that it was her nephew who was shot and killed.

     

    She was overheard saying it was the second death that the family has to mourn in less than a month.

     

    SKNVibes learnt that 25-year-old Kervin Hanley of West Farm, whose body was found on Monday, June 13, 2011 lying in a grassy area alongside a dirt road in the cane field in the Pond’s Estate area with what appeared to be gunshot injuries, was the shooting victim’s cousin.

     

    Another resident said he also heard automatic gunfire and saw two men running away from the area, but he could not say if they were masked and who they were.

     

    Assistant Commissioner of Police with responsibility for Crime, Ian Queeley was at the crime scene along with members of the Criminal Investigation Department and the Special Services Unit.

     

    He told this publication that a number of items of evidential value were collected and taken into custody for further analysis.

     

    Queeley stated that the District Medical Officer was summoned to the scene and he had pronounced Hanley dead.

     

    He also stated that the body was taken to Jenkins Funeral Home under police escort and investigations are ongoing.

     

    Hanley’s death had taken the number of homicides recorded in the twin-island Federation for the year to 20; 18 on St. Kitts and two on Nevis.

     

    His death also marks the fourth homicide to have been committed in St. Kitts over a six-day period.

     

    On Monday (July 4) Brian ‘DJ Benjie’ Farrell of Shadwell Estate died at the JNF Hospital after he was shot multiple times to the body while he was about to enter his nursery in Edwards Lane, New Ponds Site.

     

    Three days after, 25-year-old Ricardo ‘Fila’ Pemberton of Old Road was shot multiple times to the body while on Wingfield Road. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

     

    Less than 12 hours after, 22-year-old Wendell ‘Dog’ Wilkinson of Cardin Avenue was shot multiple times to the body in the vicinity of a shop in Union Street and succumbed to his injuries while undergoing emergency medical treatment at the hospital.
