They lived on the hill off Pierre
Not too far away, 17-year-old
Andre Ross, who lived at Mercer
Road, was shot repeatedly along
Sierra Leone Road.
The trek to get to the murder
scene of the trio was tedious as the
hill was steep.
Reports are that after Timothy
was shot he tried to run away but
gunmen continued shooting as he
ran into a small, unfinished con-
crete house about two feet away
from his parent s shack.
Yesterday, families and friends
tried to find a way to pick up the
pieces amidst the pain.
A female relative, who did not
give her name, walked back and
forth with a mop and bucket to
clean the blood-stained concrete
where Timothy died.
Asked if she was an offspring of

man close to the shack while
another man was seen inside of
the concrete house.
Each mattress in the two-room

In the other incident, Derwin
