Mason shot dead days after his uncle was shot and killed

A 45-year-old mason of Old Montrose whose uncle was shot and killed less than two weeks ago, has himself fallen victim to someone’s gun. The Royal St Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF), said the Major Crime Unit (MCU) is investigating the shooting death of Olando Browne also known as “Dog”.

Browne was accosted and shot by an unknown assailant at about 6:40 a.m. on Monday February, 12, 2024 in the vicinity of Greg’s Auto Rentals, Old Montrose approximately 200 feet from his home, the police said.

He was reportedly on his way to work in Campden Part at the time of the tragic incident.

A party of police officers who were on patrol duties in the district were alerted and promptly responded and secured the scene. Browne was transported to the Milton Cato

Memorial Hospital (MCMH) by the police for treatment where he was later pronounced deceased by a medical practitioner.

The police said they processed by the crime scene and collected items of evidential value.

A postmortem examination is expected to be carried out on the body to ascertain the exact cause of death. Browne was the nephew of Gibson Corner shooting victim, Jenson Aubrey Hamilton who was shot and killed on February 3, 2024 not far from his home. He told SEARCHLIGHT last week that he had no knowledge of his uncle having any “beef’ with anyone, but Aubrey was known to be “loud and outspoken”. Having been shot in January, Browne said his uncle, with whom he was close, “should of never go back” to Gibson Corner but felt Aubrey “just believe he’s iron man” and that is why he returned there.

The RSVGPF said it extends condolences to all who are negatively affected by Browne’s death and are asking anyone with information that can assist the police with this investigation to contact the Major Crime Unit at 1-784-457-1211 ext. 4816; Police Emergency at 911/999, or any police station or police officer with whom they are comfortable speaking.
