Two in custody for 15-year-old girl’s death in Seaview Gardens

Two persons have been taken into police custody in relation to the fatal shooting of a 15-year-old girl in Seaview Gardens, St Andrew last Saturday.

Investigators, who are putting together the details of the case, expect to lay charges against the suspects shortly.

Reports were that Olivia Gonzales, a student of Tarrant High School in the Corporate Area, was among a group of persons engaged in playing with an illegal gun, during which time she got shot and was later pronounced dead.

The police have still not found the gun that was involved in the incident.

However, there are indications that members of the community, out of concern about what led to the teenager’s death, have been co-operating with the police in respect of the investigation.
