A 25-year-old man was killed yesterday while approaching his Polhemus Street home in a brazen morning shooting.
A relative identified the deceased as Stervante Moss.
His mother, Myrna Auguste, said her son was arrested a few years ago for drugs and was just released from prison in February this year.
He also has a three-month-old baby.
While on the scene, Assistant Superintendent Audley Peters told reporters that initial investigations revealed the victim was approaching his home when a vehicle stopped him.
Three occupants got out of the vehicle and discharged firearms in his direction, fatally wounding him.
“We’re here this morning as a result of a shooting incident that occurred sometime before 10am when police were alerted to sounds of gunshots on Polhemus and Nassau Street. Our officers responded and on their arrival they were directed to a grey Honda Civic which was parked in an open lot,” ASP Peters added.
“An examination of that vehicle revealed the lifeless body of a male (with what) appeared to be gunshot injuries. EMS was summoned and they then pronounced the body lifeless.
“From what we gather, the victim was the only person in the vehicle.”
