On Thursday 18th March 2010 at approximately 11:10 am police on Nevis responded to a report of shooting which occurred near the High School at Gingerland. Investigations revealed that Kareem Browne 21 years old of Mc Knight but now resides at Bath Village, Nevis was shot and transported to the Alexandra Hospital where he was treated for his notably serious injuries. Some two (2) hours later while undergoing emergency treatment Browne lost the battle for his life when he succumbed to his injuries.
An autopsy will be performed later to determine the cause of death. There are no suspects in police custody in connection with Browne’s killing, however investigations are ongoing. This brings the number of homicides for the year to ten (10), eight (8) of which are been treated as murders, one (1) as a suicide and the other as a police shooting in the execution of duty.
