    I would like to see justice for this young man and all the other victims especially the ones the police have forgotten. These gunmen are like a plague that's taking over.

      So you believe man riding around randomly shooting people? Justice was served in this case. To everybody else he seems innocent I guess. His circle know exactly why he’s dead need to explain that to parents.

      A man has died violently and that’s the best you can offer?? Considering the UK officers make up a tiny fraction of the force what about the local officers?? How many murders have the local officers solved!!! Stop blaming the police for the state of our nation we have to address what everyone knows is really going in here.

        There is only one murderer in this situation here, and he is on the loose. Justice has not been served. Murder may be ok for you, but its against the law in BVI.

    What about the other murders that happened in the last few months? Do they care to solve them or will it be more unsolved murders? I swear BVI police is lame when it comes to fighting crimes. All they care about is locking up people for weed. SMFH
