Relatives of 19-year-old Romel Cudjoe, who was shot dead in Port of Spain on Friday night, are calling on the public to help the police find his killer or killers, saying they want nothing less than justice.
Cudjoe, of Valencia, was found dead at about 10.20 pm near a water tank at the Duncan Street apartment buildings.
Police said he had a single gunshot wound to the back of the head.
A team of officers from the Port of Spain Division, supervised by Supt Brandon John and included PCs Chinpire, Liverpool and WPC Jordan, visited the scene and are continuing investigations.
Distraught relatives were at the Forensic Science Centre on Monday and spoke little of Cudjoe and/or the circumstances that surrounded the killing.
One relative said that Cudjoe’s death came as a shock and all they need is justice.
“We want anyone who saw what happened and who has any idea as to why he was killed to contact the police. We need answers. We need to know why. We need justice,” a relative said.
On Monday, investigating officers told Guardian Media that they had no leads yet in the case. They also said that no one from the area in which Cudjoe was found dead, was willing to cooperate with them.
