Little Soriah shot in head, autopsy says

Friday, December 15, 2017

Little Soriah Martin died of a single gunshot wound to the head, her autopsy confirmed yesterday.

Police said afterwards that they suspect the child was hit after the bullet that struck her uncle Gregory Harracksingh in the arm, ricocheted and struck her as she stood nearby. The shooting occurred as Harracksingh was arguing with the suspect, who had gone to the Harracksingh family’s Sangre Grande house to visit his daughter.

As investigations into Martin’s death continued yesterday, police said the 29-year-old soldier in custody for her shooting was in denial over her death. Officers said the man, who was transferred from the Valencia Police Post to the Sangre Grande station after surrendering on Tuesday night, was first told of Martin’s death on Wednesday but said he did not believe it was true.
