Seven men shot dead

Seven men were today shot dead in four incidents across the city and its outskirts. Among the dead men is Dale Moore, one of the February 23 jail-break escapees. Three of the men died in two shoot-outs with the police, two died as a result of what seems to be gang warfare, the sixth was found dead in Le Repentir cemetery under unknown circumstances while the seventh may have been caught in the crossfire between the two gangs.

Large cache of weapons found

Following the shoot-out in Lamaha Gardens in which two men died, police found 13 guns, a large array of ammunition and “channa” bombs in a house. Radios and cellular phones were also found.
