Alkaline fan died attempting to stop a mugger under the new rules.


 This morning, social media reacted with fear and disbelief when it was announced that a 21-year-old Good Samaritan had been shot while trying to restrain a woman who left the alkaline event under the new rules at the National Stadium.

Police have confirmed that 21-year-old Ortniel Rowan Thomas was shot while trying to stop a motorcycle robbery. The young killer escapes.

Several messages were shared on WhatsApp and Twitter as Thomas' friend from James Hill in Clarendon reacted to the bad news.

“He is a big fan of Alkaline and is excited to attend this event. He will be celebrating his birthday on July 8. His parents in the hospital, grandparents, other family members and friends do not take him lightly.”  

Police records show that around 3:50 a.m., two men on motorcycles, one of whom was armed with a gun, stumbled upon a group of people from a party on Tom Redkham Road near the library.

The pilot got off the motorcycle and stole the woman's purse. Thomas was shot in the upper back while trying to grab the bag. He fell to the pavement, and everyone but the woman fled, leaving him behind. Police said the shooter fled on a waiting motorcycle.

The woman stopped a passing policeman and Thomas was taken to Kingston Hospital, where he was found dead at 4 am.
