la romaine   la romaine   A LA Romaine teenager was “in the wrong place at the wrong time” when he was killed during a drive-by shooting in La Romaine on Monday, his father said. Kimroy Marshall, 18, was shot multiple times and died at hospital. Another teenager, Devon Ross, was also shot several times and is in critical condition. Police are uncertain who was the target, but suspect the shooting occurred because of an ongoing gang war between residents of La Romaine and Pleasantville.

Marshall’s father, Shawn Marshall, said: “He didn’t have anything to do with anybody. My son was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.” He said his son was training to be an electrician, and he came home from work hours before the shooting.

The Express was told both men ran seeking help from neighbours. Ross’ mother, Althea Williams, said: “If the group of them were playing cards, about 15 of them might have been dead today.

“I walked to the parlour and I saw him on the road, sitting down. A short while after, I heard explosions. I told the girl in the parlour to open her gate. Two of us ended up hiding in the shop,” the mother said. She said her son was struck several times in the abdomen. Williams said last week her son told her a “hit” had been put out on him. “Last week, he told me that someone told him that somebody wanted to shoot him. I asked him why. He said he didn’t know,” she said. Officers of the nearby police post, San Fernando CID and Southern Division Task Force led by ASP Ali Mohammed, and Insps Persad and Gajadhar responded.
