The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in Grenada has concluded that the injuries which caused the death of shopkeeper, 46 year-old Odinga Thomas of St George, were inflicted in self-defense.  

The Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF) in a statement said this decision was reached on the basis of the evidence gathered from police investigations into the matter.  

The incident leading to the death of Thomas occurred on Saturday, April 19, 2024 at Beausejour St George, involving another male. Evidence revealed that Thomas confronted the other party with two cutlasses in his possession, resulting in both parties sustaining injuries. 

Thomas unfortunately succumbed to his injuries on the same night, at the General Hospital. 

As a result of the DPP’s conclusion of self-defense, no charges will be preferred against the other party involved. The authority to determine in what circumstances criminal charges may be brought, resides with the office of the DPP.
