Residents and police disagree on account of late night shooting

by | Sep 26, 2014

DESPERLIE SHOOTINGA man who police claim was responsible for the death of Lance Corporal Kayode Thomas was among three people killed by gunmen last night.

Police said 30 year old Dillon ‘Bandy’ Skeete, a Jamaican national and another man were the casualties of a drive by shooting at Desperlie Crescent Laventille.

Police said a rival gang from the area was responsible for the shooting which took place shortly after 9 pm.

However, a resident has told a different story.

She said the men were among a group liming in the area when officers in a black SUV pulled up and demanded that they get on their knees.

She alleged the police were the real killers.
