Following the shooting incident that took place outside the Western Stars Sports Club early this morning, that claimed the life of a 30-year-old man, club officials along with the Minister of National Security Jeff Baron held a Press Conference.
Club President Willis Dill said, “Unfortunately, another one of our sons of the soil met with tragedy last night. For us here at the Western Stars Sports Club – it was at our club – on behalf of the members and officers of the Western Stars Sports Club, we would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the family of this young man.”
National Security Minister Baron said, “I’m here to support this club, because of the tremendous amount of work that Western Stars does for this community, we must not forget that, even in the darkest time.”
Opposition MP Michael Weeks, who is also a past Vice President of the club said, “I would like to reiterate that this is not a Western Stars problem, this is a community problem, and we as a country have to address it. It’s not a sports problem, it’s a social problem.”
