PM Reacts to Shooting of His Niece as 3 are Detained by Police

On Thursday, we brought you the early developments in the shooting of Candice Anderson, the thirty-one year old daughter of Denise “Sista B” Barrow, who is the sister of Prime Minister Dean Barrow. Police today announced that Anderson remains in stable condition and three persons have been detained as investigations continue. The Prime Minister was put in the unusual role of a relative of a shooting victim as he addressed the situation with reporters today.

“As far as I know, she had surgery and the prognosis is that she would make a full recovery so we are very thankful for that.”



“Sir, do you know the extent of her injuries?”


Dean Barrow

“My understanding is that…when I went yesterday evening, she was still sedated, but my understanding is that she sustained two gunshot wounds—one in her leg and one in what was described to me as her flank. I’m not quite sure what flank means in that context, but that’s what I was told.”

“Have you had a chance to speak with your sister in terms of how they are holding up and what’s going on on their end?”


Dean Barrow

“I was there at her house with her yesterday afternoon and I think by then, yesterday evening, by then it was known that Candace should make a full recovery so that greatly eased whatever pressure there had initially been.”
