Glenford Vernon Murdered on Castle Street

There was a murder in the old capital this afternoon and at this point, there are only preliminary reports about what happened on Castle Street. Just before two this afternoon, twenty-five year old Glenford Vernon was killed as he sat on a chair inside a tattoo shop. A lone gunman entered the lower flat of the two storey concrete building and opened fire on Vernon, who died within minutes of the shooting. Vernon was the obvious target since no one else was injured in the shooting. The motive is not known nor does his name appear in our crime archives.  And police would only add that they are looking for one person who can assist them with the investigation.


ACP Dezerie Phillips, Regional Commander, Eastern Division North

“I can confirm that there was a shooting incident reported on Castle Street sometime around a quarter to two this afternoon where one Glenford Vernon was fatally shot. Initially investigations so far revealed that he was at a tattoo shop on Castle Street, someone entered and fired several shots, fatally wounding him. That’s the basic information that we can give you at this time and to say that we are looking for one person that may be able to assist us in this investigation.”

“I know it is just preliminary, but any motive as yet with this investigation, so far?”


ACP Dezerie Phillips

“Too young to determine a motive as yet Duane. That’s about all that I can share at this time.”
