Bajan man shot dead in car

(Barbados Nation) Another young man met a tragic end yesterday as he was apparently shot and killed while sitting in his car not far from home.

Travis Ojay Bramble, 28, of Spencer’s Gap, Baxters Road, The City, was killed around 3:15 p.m. Police reported that they responded to shots fired in the area and found Bramble slumped in the driver’s seat. It is being treated as a suspected homicide.

Curious neighbours and onlookers gathered in the area near St Mary’s Primary School to catch a glimpse of the body. A number of pupils even peered through the school’s fence to catch a glimpse of the proceedings, but they were quickly called away by concerned teachers.

Bramble’s father Samuel Holder, and a woman, said to be his mother, were seen crying. She was supported by a friend as she was led to the gruesome scene.

At one point Holder was resting on an embankment as if gathering his thoughts as he mourned the loss of his son.
