Four people have been detained for questioning in connection with the weekend’s triple murder in Santa Cruz. However, no charges have been laid against any of them yet.
Investigators yesterday told the T&T Guardian that enquiries were ongoing and they could not comment further on the incident.
Relatives of all three victims, who were at the Forensic Science Centre in St James yesterday, refused to comment on the killings. Among the three who were killed was the son of a police officer.
The three victims were identified as 19-year-old Francois Hall, Ian Garcia, 45 and a third man identified only by the alias "Darko".
A fourth man who was also shot remains warded at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC), Mt Hope, in a serious condition.
It was reported that at about 10.40 pm on Saturday at Kingston Avenue in La Canoa, Santa Cruz, two warring gangs in the area opened fire on each other.
Hall and Darko were hit in the crossfire and died on the spot, while Garcia and the fourth victim were taken to the hospital. Garcia died while undergoing treatment.
Investigations are continuing.
