MARCUS Williams was shot and killed, and his friend wounded, near their home in the crime hotspot of Bayshore, Marabella on Wednesday night.
Williams, 28, died at the scene, and Pangus McBurnie, 32, of Ghandi Street, also in Marabella, was at hospital last night listed in serious condition.
Williams' brother, Nigel Williams, yesterday called on Minister of National Security Jack Warner to discipline police officers who refuse to help citizens.
Williams said he went to the police for help in capturing his brother's killer, but officers refused.
"I didn't know it was my brother who was shot. I saw the man walk past me with the gun. I tell my friend come with me and we went for my car. Then I heard somebody get shoot and we went looking for the man. He run to Sunset Avenue and I started circling the area with my car so he couldn't get out. I trap him," he said.
Williams said he went to the nearby Marabella Police Station but officers refused to accompany him.
"They keep saying the police gone where the shooting happened.
But I telling them I know where the man was. If a police went with me I am sure we would have caught the man. The police telling me they have no car and I seeing two cars in the yard," he said.
Officers at the Marabella Police Station refused to comment the issue yesterday.
Residents said the shooting may be a case of Williams and McBurnie being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Police are searching for two men in connection with the shooting.
The suspects, residents said, came earlier that afternoon in the area and asked where they could buy marijuana.
They returned at around 10.15 p.m., walked up to a group of men, and asked to be told the whereabouts of a person.
When no one replied, the suspects began shooting.
McBurnie underwent emergency surgery for bullet wounds to the chest and right leg.
He was interviewed by police yesterday.
Neighbours said that Williams was a "quiet man who kept to himself" and lived with his family. The murder toll now stands at 200 according to an Express tally.
