Well 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. Initial investigations so far reveal that he was at a tattoo shop on Castle Street and someone entered and fired several shots fatally wounding him. That’s about the basic information that I can give you at this time and to say that we are looking for one person that may be able to assist us in the investigation.”
