Contrary to earlier reports, reputed gangster Richie Poo remains hospitalised in critical condition, the police told our news team yesterday. On Wednesday, several persons, including family members and law enforcement officers, had reported that he had succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment.
The former top-tier member of the Gideon Warriors gang, whose given name is Kevin Tyndale, was among five people shot on Wednesday during an attack along Old Hope Road in St Andrew.
One man was killed in the incident.
Initial reports were that Richie Poo was also killed. However, yesterday a senior officer told The Gleaner that, “his condition was very bad when they brought him in. The doctors did everything they possibly could in trying to save him. There were several reports that he died, but they worked on him overnight and now he is in critical condition.”
