Relatives of Sheldon "Scary"
Jeremiah, who was shot dead by
police on Saturday in Rio Claro,
are claiming he was unlawfully
ASP Neville Sankar, of the East-
ern Division, in a telephone inter-
view with the T&T Guardian yes-
terday said it was unfortunate that
they had that perception of the
"Investigations are ongoing and
people who witnessed the shoot-
ing, please come forward because
we must be transparent in our
investigations," Sankar said.

She said Jeremiah, 38, was
released from prison last year and
tried to change from his criminal
past but the community he grew
up in was not giving him the
opportunity to change.
A female relative of Jeremiah,
who did not want to be identified,

They came, took a man away in
handcuffs in a police car and the

Huggins added: "If he come out
surrendering himself and you all

found him carry him to hospital
or police station then put him
before the courts.
"Why is it that you have to be
the judge, juror and executioner?
Something missing there because
if someone could call them and
say that the man they was looking
for right there in the woods and
allyuh come and kill him.
"People in the area feeling bad
because they saying had they
known he would have died they
would not have called. So what
about me and his children? What
about his two-month-old girl?
She will now never know her
