The case involving a 14 year old boy who was fatally shot at an event in Sea Lots on Saturday morning has gotten the attention of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association.
Reports indicate that Roberts and some friends were at a street party when at approximately 11.30 am several gunshots were heard.
Attendees at the event scampered to safety as the shooting began, however when the smoke cleared 14 year old Jerrel Roberts was seen lying on the roadway bleeding from a wound to the head.
Relatives took him to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital where he was treated and then placed on a ward where his condition was initially described as critical.
He succumbed to his injuries around 6 pm that day.
In an interview with News Power Now this morning, President of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service Social and Welfare Association Inspector Michael Seales explained that the promoters of the event should be held accountable.
He disclosed that there should be a civil suit against the promoters.
Inspector Seales also lamented the fact that there was no security provided at the event.
