By BBN Staff: A man is dead and another injured following a shooting that took place in Seine Bight Village, Stann Creek District, early this morning.
Police say that the shooting happened around 12:35 a.m. at Gee Pee’s Bar, where 32-year-old Ernest Staine was shot several times to the body and died on the spot. Also injured in the incident was 30-year-old Alrick Munnings, who was shot to the neck.
Reports are that the bar owner’s family members were socializing in the bar shed when a man dressed in a black hoodie, came with what witnesses described as a black .9mm pistol and began shooting.
Munnings was the first to be shot, then the shooter turned his attention to Staine, firing several times at him then approaching him and firing more shots at closer range. Up to 13 expended shells were recovered from the scene.
Munnings was taken to the Placencia Polyclinic for medical attention and later transferred to the Southern Regional Hospital.
Police have several people detained and are seeking another suspect as part of an ongoing investigation.
