Minister & Senator Meet With Police After Shooting

April 18, 2011

Minister of National Security Wayne Perinchief confirmed that he, with Junior Minister, Senator Jonathan Smith, met with the Commissioner of Police and his Senior Command team in the wake of last night’s [Apr.17] shooting. Both politicians are former top ranking Police officers.

At approximately 10:20pm last night 26-year-old David Clarke was shot multiple times while he was in the area of the junction of North Shore Road and Band Room Lane in Pembroke, and was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Police spokesman said that Mr. Clarke was travelling west on North Shore Road at about 10:30pm last night after leaving a function at the Mid Atlantic Boat Club. He was riding towards his house which was less than 100 metres away from where this incident occurred. Police said that Mr. Clarke was targeted by two persons on a motorcycle who were also riding west on North Shore Road

Minister Perinchief said: “The Commissioner and his team provided a comprehensive briefing on this tragic incident and I am satisfied that they are well engaged in the investigative process and I urge those members of the public who may have information to come forward to assist.”

“Violent acts such as last night’s shooting are senseless and deprive the community of deserved peace and a family of a loved one’s presence. There are no winners.”

“My sincerest condolences are expressed to the family of the late David Clarke.”
