ST. GEORGE’S, Grenada, April 2, 2020 (CMC) – The Royal Grenada Police Force launched an investigation, yesterday, into threats made against the life of Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Mitchell.
Superintendent, Vannie Curwen, said the threat, made on social media, appeared, soon after investigators began probing the murder of a man, in the parish of St. George’s, on Tuesday night, during the curfew period.
According to a video, posted on the social media, the perpetrator, wearing a mask, also threatened to kill police officers.
“We are vigorously pursuing this individual. We have had a number of leads. We think we, probably, know who it is, and we will leave no stone unturned to find whoever is responsible,” Curwen said.
The senior police officer denied that police officers were involved in the killing of the victim in St. George’s, and revealed that several persons are assisting with the investigation.
“I can confirm that we are currently investigating a murder, and I want to be categorically clear here, I want to say to the Grenadian public, there is no police involvement in this shooting,” Curwen said, adding “we have started our investigations vigorously, (and) we do have a number of persons, in custody, assisting us with our investigation”.
