Murder in Trench Town

Dominic Fields – the second Guyanese to be killed for the year

Grenada has recorded its second murder for the New Year.

Dead is Dominic Fields, an 18 year old Guyanese national residing at Sendall Street in Grenville, St Andrew.

Details of the killing are very sketchy but police have arrested a 19-year old suspect of Village Road, St. Andrew to assist them with their investigation into Saturday night’s incident.

THE NEW TODAY understands that the incident took place in the drug-infested and gambling area known as Trench Town, a section of Sendall Street.

The killing took place around 8.30 p.m. and might have been sparked by a longstanding feud between the two youngsters.

The Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) has not issued any official bulletin on the second murder for the year on the island.

A police insider said that Fields was apparently stabbed to death from a wound to his neck.

He confirmed that a cutlass was found at the crime scene.

THE NEW TODAY cannot confirm initial reports that the murder suspect was apprehended shortly after the killing and taken to the Grenville Police Station but moments later ran out of the precinct.

There are also reports that Fields was running a Facebook page by the name of Mafia GT.

Police investigations are continuing into the latest murder.

The first murder for the year was 79-year old Guyanese national, John Merchant on February 12 when he was allegedly killed by 27-year old Kelly Daniel, a mentally challenged person who used to do occasional gardening for him.

According to an elderly citizen in St. Andrew, there is an urgent need for the authorities to address the growing problem of violence in the island’s largest parish.

He expressed fears that the neighbouring Telescope has overtaken “Trench Town”  as the most depressed section of Grenville and it was “a sitting time bomb” for serious acts of violence to erupt anytime especially among the youth population.
