BASSETERRE, St.Kitts (Monday 8th April 2024)-St. Kitts police are on the hunt for suspects following two separate shootings-occurring hours apart- that have left two men in their 30s dead and another, also in his 30s, injured.

Dead are 33 -year-old Alex Harris of Challengers Village and 37-year-old Rashiel James of Middle Island while 30-year-old Leshawn Hazel of Main Street, Dieppe Bay is currently being nursed for gunshot wounds.

The first shooting took place at the Basseterre Bus and Ferry Terminal between 11:30 PM on Saturday 6th April and 12 AM on Sunday 7th April 7th, 2024.

Harris was found motionless in a chair by responding officers. Police say initial investigations suggest that he was fatally shot by a lone assailant. Despite efforts to save him, Harris was pronounced dead at the scene.

Shortly after, another shooting unfolded at a bar on Main Street in Parson’s Village between 1:30 AM and 2:30 AM on April 7th, 2024. James was discovered lying motionless on the ground while Hazel of Main sustained injuries during the attack.
