Relatives of slain 23-year-old Moruga man, Anderson Williams, were still trying to understand why he was killed, as they spoke to reporters at Forensics yesterday.
According to reports, Williams was standing on the corner of Samuel Cooper Junction when a gunman approached him and shot him several times.
The gunman fled the scene as he slumped to the ground. Police and emergency services were contacted, and when they responded they found his dead body lying on the roadside.
Relatives told Newsday he was a security guard. They described him as a caring and helpful person.
“Once he knew you, he would help you out,” said one relative, “He was like a godfather to the people in the area. He was a real cool one man, a real cool one.”
An autopsy performed on his body confirmed that he died from multiple gunshot wounds. Investigations are ongoing.
