Police are investigating a gruesome murder, which occurred just after 3 p.m. Wednesday at Goddard Road, St Stephen’s Hill, St Michael.
Lawmen are yet to release the name of the victim.
However, when Barbados TODAY arrived at the scene, family members and friends were able to clearly identify the dead man as Jerome Bovell, better known as Wild Geese.
The victim, who is said to be in his 40s, was also said to be known to police.
As pictures of his execution-style killing went viral on social media Wednesday evening, the victim, who was wearing a white vest, black jeans and a Michael Kors belt, was seen lying flat on his back in a pool of blood, with at least six spent bullets on the ground.
However, there was talk at the scene of him receiving at least 13 gunshot injuries, including what were believed to be fatal shots to his head.
A fallen umbrella and a discarded slipper also told the story of how Bovell met his untimely death.
With residents reacting in obvious disbelief over his killing, family members huddled together in the rain, some of them quietly shedding tears, but hardly uttering an audible word over the sudden and unexpected death of their loved one.
As police with heavy artillery descended on the scene, residents appeared apprehensive about speaking about the incident.
And all Public Relations Officer Acting Inspector Roland Cobbler would say was that a report was received around 3:40 p.m. of a man being shot multiple times.
The matter remains under investigation.
