Rain did not deter over 100 mourners from paying their last respects to murdered witness Je'Hlano Romney at his funeral in Diego Martin on Thursday afternoon.
Romney, 30, was gunned down at his father's Poinsettia Drive, Morvant, home on Sunday night.
On April 22 he was accused of murdering PC Clarence Gilkes at upper Richplain Road, Diego Martin.
He fled the scene and went into hiding, surrendering to police a week later with his attorney Criston Williams.
Romney was later considered to be a witness when Gilkes' autopsy revealed he was shot from behind with a police-issued bullet, contradicting the original account given by the police.
Most of the mourners dressed in traditional Islamic wear packed the tents shortly after 1 pm at the Al-Huda masjid, Upper Richplain Road, for his Janazah Salah (Islamic funeral prayer).
Among the mourners were Romney's relatives and friends.
This is the same masjid that was raided by police from the Western Division on April 22, when Romney was originally considered to be a suspect in Gilkes' murder.
The masjid which consists of two tents, is surrounded by houses. It stands halfway up the hill on Richplain Road, walking distance away from where Romney was confronted by police.
While there were some showers before the ceremony began,the rain eased enough to allow mourners to reach the masjid.
Some mourners stayed in the road outside and followed the prayers as they were recited in Arabic.
A large group of heavily armed police from the Western Division Task Force stood outside the masjid and kept a close watch on the proceedings.
The ceremony lasted only 15 minutes, with no eulogy or tributes.
Romney's body was loaded into a nearby hearse immediately after the prayers were completed.
All of the mourners left the masjid as quickly as possible in nearby cars.
Romney's mother Kadaffi Romney had to be consoled by relatives as his body was put into the hearse.
He was buried at the Munroe Road Cemetery.
