Initial reports reaching MiyVue.com suggest that the young man hails from Nevis but was, at the time of his death, residing in St. Kitts.
According to a police press release, police officers received a report at about 10:10 p.m. indicating that a shooting had occurred at Conaree. It further explains that their investigations revealed that the victim was Quincy Liburd of Gingerland, Nevis.
“Police officers from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Special Services Unit (SSU) and Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) responded immediately to the scene and their investigations revealed that, 29 years old Quincy Liburd of Gingerland, Nevis but who resides at Lime Kiln Project was shot multiple times and killed. Investigations also revealed that Shevaughn Hendrickson, 22 years old of Lime Kiln was also shot and injured during the same incident.”
MiyVue.com understands that the incident occurred at Paradise Road and according to the police communiqué, while Liburd was waiting to transport his cousin in motor jeep PA4557, masked gunmen launched their attack.
“The deceased Quincy Liburd was parked outside a certain residence in Conaree waiting to pick up his cousin Shevaughn Hendricks in motor jeep PA-4557. Just before Hendricks entered the vehicle, two masked assailants fired multiple shots at both Hendricks and Liburd, killing Liburd and injuring Hendricks seriously. Liburd received multiple shots about his body and Hendricks received shots to his legs and hand.”
The police have further advised that Hendrickson was able to escape with his life “through some nearby bushes.” Liburd, however, was not that fortunate and although he “immediately drove off attempting to escape”, he was unsuccessful as he “lost control and collided to the rear of motor car PA6916”.
Hendrickson was taken to the Joseph N. France General Hospital where he is warded in stable condition.
The scene was processed by officers of the Crime Scene Department and investigations into the murder are ongoing.
Liburd’s death marks the third murder to have taken place in the federation for the year, 2011. The second was that of Shawn ‘Tegreman’ Brazier who was gunned down in the Newtown area on 5th March at about 3:00 in the morning. The first murder victim for the year is Devon ‘Roller’ Morton who died days after he sustained gunshot wounds while at a bar at Cunningham Village.
