According to the SKNVibes Krishna Chatram was arrested on Sunday for the shooting of his father Shawn ‘Fisherman’ Chatram who identified his son as his attacker by writing as the injury he sustained to his mouth has left him temporarily without his speech.

The report quoted a police release as saying that initial investigations by the Violent Crime Unit on Nevis revealed that Chatram of Stoney Grove was attacked by an assailant, whom he identified as his son.

The incident, according to police, “occurred on Wednesday at or about 10:30 p.m. at Pinney’s Beach”.

He was shot in the mouth and chest and was receiving treatment at the Alexandra Hospital, where he was in critical but stable condition.

On Sunday he was flown by air ambulance to Barbados, where he is scheduled to undergo major operations and remedial treatment at that island’s premier medical institution, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
