Hamilton Homicide & Wounding Under Police Investigation

The Police are investigating a shooting incident that took place in Hamilton, Nevis, on May 24, 2024, between 10:30 PM and 11 PM. The criminal act resulted in the death of Ms. Joelle Huggins of Hamilton and left her brother, Julian Huggins of Hamilton, seriously wounded.

When officers arrived at the scene outside the victims’ home, they found Mr. Huggins in a vehicle with bullet wounds to his left leg and abdomen. He was immediately taken to the Alexandra Hospital, where he received treatment and is now in stable condition. Ms. Huggins was found on the ground some distance from the vehicle with bullet wounds to her body. She was examined and pronounced deceased at the scene.

An investigation into the incident is now underway, and the general public will be kept informed as it progresses. If anyone has any information about this or any other criminal incident, they are encouraged to contact the nearest Police station or call the Crimestoppers’ hotline at 707.
