An 18-year old mechanic from Belmont, St. George’s is the country’s sixth murder victim.
Samuel Gabriel was allegedly knifed to death by Akim Monah, alias Ali Barber, from Grand Anse Valley, St. George’s.
A release from the Community Relations Department of the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) said that Gabriel received a single stab wound underneath the left breast at the hands of Monah.
The incident happened at about 2:00 a.m. last week Friday at the weekly Carnival City activity which takes place at Garfield’s Summer Lime at the Kirani James Boulevard.
Gabriel was rushed to the St. George’s General Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
A high level source told The New Today Newspaper that both men were involved in a heated argument which, in the end, turned out to be fatal for Gabriel.
Immediately following the incident, the police issued a “Wanted Man Bulletin” as the 20-year old Monah attempted to evade their noose.
However, he was captured the following day and taken into custody by Officers attached to the Criminal Investigation Department.
Monah, a tradesman by profession, was charged for the offense of murder by unlawfully causing the death of Gabriel.
The Grand Anse Valley resident who is being represented by Attorney Peter David was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prisons at Richmond Hill, St. George’s by Chief Magistrate Tamara Gill on Monday.
He is due back in court on July 20.
