Within a period of four months, two brothers and their stepfather have been killed by gun violence. 21-year-old Jahvin Wagner was shot to the head on Tuesday night in Dangriga. Love News understands that the murder took place just after seven o’clock in the Harlem area on Commerce Street of Dangriga Town. Jahvin was reportedly socializing when he was approached by the shooter. A lead was given to the Police two weeks ago regarding Jahvin Wagner. Following the lead, upon arrival to Wagner’s home the police were informed that he had moved to another part of the country. According to the Commissioner of Police, Chester Williams, the police were not informed that he had returned to Dangriga until after his death.
Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: “Police were called to the area and upon arrival they saw the lifeless body of Mr.Wagner on the ground. He was taken to the Southern Regional Hospital and was pronounced dead on arrival. I must say that we sympathize with the mother, she must be going through a really tough time having lost her common law husband then a son then a second son to gun violence. From a police standpoint we continue to investigate the matter. We are looking for a person of interest, once that person is caught then we will see where the investigation goes from there. We know that certain information was fed to us about two weeks ago where Jahvin was concerned and we had made checks with his family and were told that he had moved from Dangriga and had been living in some other area of the country. Apparently he returned to Dangriga unknowing to us and we only knew of his return after he was killed.”
It was only two months ago that Jahvin’s brother, Jebran Wagner was shot to death during a party on Coney Drive on September 30. Two months prior to that the stepfather, Edwin Felix Nasario was killed in the parking lot of the Southern Regional Hospital in July.
