AFTER yet another fatal shooting at a KFC outlet, CEO of Prestige Holdings Simon Hardy has sent condolences to the family of Ashar Kirby, the PH driver who was shot and killed at the KFC outlet in Westmoorings.
“Prestige Holdings Ltd (PHL) extends condolences to the relatives of the murder victim and injured people in last night’s shooting...PHL will co-operate fully with the authorities in their investigation on request,” said the company via a release.
The statement came hours after Kirby was killed and four others were wounded.
According to reports, Kirby went to the KFC in Westmoorings on Thursday night after picking up Jamal Samuel and his girlfriend.
At about 10.30, when they arrived at the outlet, the girlfriend ordered their meals, dropped off the food, and was returning with the drinks when she saw two men approach their car and open fire. Kirby died in the car after being shot several times. Samuel suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
The shooting was part of a string of murders within a matter of hours across the country.
The murder toll for the year now stands at 292. For the same period last year, it was 302.
