By Aaron Humes: On Thursday we brought you the early developments in the shooting of Candice Anderson, the 31 year old daughter of Prime Minister Dean Barrow’s sister, chief campaigner and surrogate in the Queen’s Square Division, Denise “Sista B” Barrow. Police today announced that Candice Anderson remains in stable condition as they continue to seek her attacker. The Prime Minister was put in the unusual role of a relative of a shooting victim as he addressed the situation with reporters today, stating that Anderson was shot twice in her leg and “flank” or thigh and had to be sedated before undergoing surgery.
The Prime Minister said that he could not speak to why Candice Anderson was at the house where she was shot on Thursday. As it relates to the fight against crime, the nation’s leader says as criminal activity is unceasing, so too is the Government’s marshaling resources to fight it.
