A man was stabbed about 7pm at Bois Patat. Details are still unclear, but the victim is reported to have died at Victoria Hospital.
Victim is reportedly known as “Not Nice.”
Bois Patat is the same area where 27 year old resident of Jacmel, Uriaus Anthony, was shot in the head on Monday January 8, 2017. He received multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene. That death was homicide #8 of 2017.
That shooting followed the previous day’s (Sunday) record number of homicides which totaled and was labeled “Bloody Sunday.”
