In the early afternoon of Sunday, a man died after being shot by an individual who attempted to steal his scooter.
The victim was seated on his two-wheeler in front of the entrance to a supermarket in Simpson Bay when a youth approached him. Armed, the latter pointed the gun at the victim and asked him to give him his scooter. For reasons that the police have not yet specified, a gunshot was fired wounding the owner of the two-wheeler who died a few minutes later despite attempts to resuscitate the emergency services. Then the gunman stole the scooter and fled.
