Police intervened to control the chaos, however the large, angry mob continued to shout in anger, even as officers tried to drag some people away from the scene.Later a man in yellow and blue screamed: “When we ga have a peaceful election? Whoever win, win. What wrong with these people?” At one point PLP incumbent for West End and Bimini Obie Wilchcombe is seen in the crowd, trying to calm things down.It is unclear what started the brawl.#magneticmedianews#fightingatpollingcentrelast_img
