(CNS): The police have now identified the victim of a fatal shooting Tuesday night. Dougmore Leroy Wright (44) from George Town was found dead in the street on Prospect Drive around 10pm after he was shot in what was believed to be a drive-by shooting. Police have not yet confirmed any of the details but other sources have said that the sound of a speeding vehicle was heard before and after multiple shots were fired in the area. 

Yesterday police issued an alert requesting the public’s help in locating Elmer Walter Wright, a relative of the victim whom they described as armed and dangerous.

Following the identification of Dougmore Wright, the police extended condolences to the victim’s loved ones and urged the public to come forward with information about the shooting. Anyone who can help is asked to call the RCIPS Major Incident Room at 649-4502.

    Here’s an idea… remand and hold prisoners on gun charges until trial and sentencing. There are people waiting trial up at Northward for lesser charges and they aren’t being bailed. WHY THIS ONE?! The system has FAILED society on SO many levels…

    Section 7 of the Conditional Release Law (and section 29 of the Prison Law before it) were brought in to save government a few dollars by giving repeat violent offenders a RIGHT to get back onto our streets to rape, rob, and murder even when on bail. How many peoples lives have been ruined because of the early release of repeat violent offenders? Repeat violent offenders should almost never be released after serving only a fraction of their already far too short sentences.

    Elmer just came out of HMP Hotel for shouting at police after they chased him in BT for robbing a gas station. This guy is very violent and society needs to be protect from him.
