Man Shot Dead at Majesty Gardens During Peace Concert
Tragedy struck at the ‘Stop the Crime and Violence’ concert in Majesty Gardens on the weekend after a man was found dead.
The concert, ironically, had been staged to promote peace in the violence-prone community, but ended prematurely when a man was shot and killed outside the venue. According to the police, at about 8:40 pm, several shots were fired, sending patrons scurrying for safety. When the smoke cleared, residents found the body of 44-year-old Louis Gordon of a New Road address lying in a pool of congealing blood.
The police were summoned, and reported that Francis was shot several times in the upper body.
The show, which is part of an ongoing series of concerts dubbed ‘Stop the Crime and Violence’ tour, was held in association with Catalyst Entertainment Group, IRIE FM and the Peace Management Initiative.
Dancehall star Dexta Daps will reportedly headline the event on September 15 in Seaview Gardens, and on September 22, the venue will be Tivoli Gardens. After that, the next stops will be Fltecher’s Land, Torrington Park before the climax in Arnett Gardens on October 13.
