But while Coco lives to see another day, another resident on the island did not share the same fate. The escalating gun violence has cast an international black eye on the country’s tourism product and also on the island that’s proud of its integration of expats, locals and visitors. 66-year-old Cliff Kirk was one such foreigner who met his demise in this way. Kirk succumbed to injuries he sustained when four men accosted him last Thursday morning. Kirk who owned Casa Brisas in San Pedro Town was shot to the right side of his head during a home invasion. Kirk was flown out of the country for further treatment but sadly succumbed to his injuries. Police have detained three persons, Nigel Williams, Christian Espat and a minor in connection with the incident.
