Manager of the Market Access and Rural Enterprise Programme (MAREP), Byron Campbell has reportedly shot and injured an intruder at his Mt. Moritz home.
THE NEW TODAY newspaper understands that the incident took place in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Campbell reportedly shot the individual in the shoulder with his licensed firearm after he was awaken by a noise coming from the downstairs of his house.
According to well-placed sources, the MAREP boss also became a Good Samaritan to the injured man.
This newspaper understands that Campbell who is a skilled Para-medic instructed Police Officers who were called in to take away the intruder to apply pressure to the wound that was bleeding profusely.
Although sources close to Campbell are tight-lipped about the incident, a villager confided to THE NEW TODAY that the victim whose name is being withheld worked as a gardener for the MAREP Boss.
The source who spoke on condition of not being identified said Campbell, who was actively involved in the 1979-83 Grenada Revolution resisted shooting to kill the intruder but instead shot him in the shoulder.
About one week ago, a television at Campbell’s home went missing.
Speculation is rife that the intruder might have entered the house to take away a chain saw.
