Shervon Lewis last few hours alive was
spent arranging with his mechanic to sell
an old car and discussing with relatives
his intention of selling his $50,000 gold
chain to purchase a new car.
Around 6.45 pm he left his Cane Farm,
Trincity, home to buy doubles along the
Eastern Main Road, in the carpark of LB s
Supermarket wearing the chain.
One relative saw him and did not advise
him to take it off saying his response would
have been "Don t jumbie me."
Police said around 7 pm, two men accosted
Lewis demanding the chain. He refused and
attempted to fight them off, where upon
he was shot repeatedly.
The men snatched off the chain, as Lewis
fell to the ground, fired two shots in the air
and fled the scene, an eyewitness told police.
Speaking with the media at the Forensic
Science Centre, St James, yesterday, Lewis
father, Erwin, said he had spoken to Lewis
about selling the chain because of the esca-
lating crime situation but his son did not
take heed. He added that life in this country
seemed so worthless now that you can be
killed for anything.
"I used to say Boy, what you going out
with that chain for? You know how much
that chain worth? About $50,000. You
wearing a chain worth that much and them
fellas know the value of them kinda things,
in this time, they not coming to ask no
"I hear the fellas just walk up to him
while he was eating doubles and just Bow
About four shots they hit him. I m sorry
police didn t hear them shots and deal with
them the same way. I don t know why they
can t stop killing people," Erwin said, as he
paced the parking lot.
"I don t know what going on in this coun-
try. People have to get their act together.
People saying that the youths desperate,
but they don t want to work, they don t
want to train. They just want to take people
things. So you have something of value and
you have to hide it away," his father said.
A female relative of the murdered Agri-
culture Ministry employee interjected, say-
ing she spoke with Lewis hours before his
death and ironically they spoke of the crime
situation and a recent murder in La Hor-
Police said they intend to review footage
from nearby cameras to assist them in solv-
ing this murder and pleaded with anyone
with useful information to come forward.
