Breaking News: Shooting and Unruly Behaviour Brings An Abrupt End To J’Ouvert Jam In Sugar City
By: Staff Reporter
A premature end to the J’Ouvert morning jump-up has cast a dark shadow over Sugar Mas 47.
Kittitians, Nevisians and visitors alike were enjoying J’ouvert this morning, (Wednesday 26th December) when the celebration was marred by violent activities. A shooting incident, a stone/bottle throwing incident, fighting and other minor incidents brought the J’Ouvert jump-up to an abrupt end by security forces, (the jam was stopped around 10).
Unconfirmed reports indicate that two persons were shot and injured.

Criminal behaviour continues to create mayhem in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis to the dismay of revellers, who came out to enjoy the J’Ouvert jump-up for Sugarmas 47.
This will certainly create some fear with revellers going forward.
