Nevis recorded its third shooting death for 2010, the fourth such incident for the Federation, when on Tuesday night a Vincentian man was gunned down. Police Public Relations Officer Inspector Vaughan Henderson confirmed the murder late Tuesday night, telling The Observer the approximate time of the shooting. “Police responded to a report of a shooting at Ramsbury which occurred sometime after 10. Investigations revealed that 31-year-old Wesley Trimmingham was discovered dead of what appeared to be gunshot wounds,” he said. The victim, who was said to have resided at both Cedar Trees and Craddock Road, was shot multiple times about the body. So far no one has been apprehended for the murder and police officials assure that they are investigating. Coming off the Federation’s most murderous year in recent memory — 27 homicides in 2009 — 2010 began its homicide toll on the very first day. At about 6 a.m. January 1, 26-year-old Kittitian Keithon Stanley was shot to death at Craddock Road, Nevis and six days later on January 7, 23-year-old Kimoy Powell was gunned down at Crosses Alley at about 8:50 pm. The third murder occurred on St. Kitts on January 20th when Maxwell ‘Mad Max’ Chumney of West Street, Newtown was discovered shot to death in his yard. He was 32 years old. No arrests have been made in any of these three previous murders.
