BARBADOS-CRIME-UWI student slain at birthday gathering

Police are investigating the murder of a student from the Cave Hill campus of the University of the West Indies (UWI), who was among two people shot and killed at Orange Cottage, St Joseph, east of here.

Police said that 20-year-old Tyrese Caesar and 34-year-old Trae Harris were shot killed on Wednesday night during an incident that also left 19-year-old Seth Towler injured.

“He was my only grand and she is my only child. He didn’t have to die so. You don’t look forward to burying your children at all. He would have been 21 in September,” said 70-year-old Patricia Moore, as she struggles to come to term with the murder of Caesar, her grandson.

Caesar recently returned from visiting Canada with his mother and stepfather, and Moore said she and the young man were planning to have an enjoyable time on an upcoming overseas trip.

Police have so far given no motive for the killings.
