Rihanna’s cousin was sadly shot to death the day after Christmas. The 23 year old, Shawayne Dashawn Williams, is ordered to remain in custody until his next hearing on January 31st.
Police tape circled the back of a property where residents say the crime took place. Tavon was only 21 years old.
The Daily Mail reported, “Alleyne, 21, was walking through a track in the St Michael’s area (highlighted) of the holiday island at around 7pm on December 26 when he was approached by a man and shot several times.”
Tavan’s fatality is apparently one of many recently. Barbados Police have reported a significant rise in gun-related crimes on the island compared to 2016 reports. So far 22 out of the 28 murders that have been committed this year have been gun related. When you think about the number of murders and how we haven’t even hit the double digits yet in the month, it’s somewhat sad.
