Meanwhile, Commissioner of Police Mark Collin is asking for the public’s help in identifying those who are in possession of firearms in order to prevent any more deaths.

“We are making headway in charging those who are shooting or in possession of guns but this, unfortunately, is not always in time to prevent injury or the loss of life. We need the public’s assistance in identifying persons who are keeping or carrying these deadly weapons. The next life saved could be yours or a loved one close to you,” he noted.

Witnesses in the last night’s homicide or with information about persons in possession of illegal guns are asked to contact the RVIPF Intelligence Unit at 368-9339.
