‘Papi’ gunned down in his living room

A 69-year-old man, identified as Selwyn ‘Papi’ Boxie, was shot dead in his living room on Friday night.

Around 8 p.m., a friend of Boxie’s son was sitting in the porch of their Palmyra Road, San Fernando home, when a man dressed in a hoodie asked for ‘Papi’.

The man then boldly walked into the living room where Boxie sat on a couch and shot him.

The killer fled in a waiting Nissan AD wagon.

Boxie was shot several times.

He was rushed to the San Fernando General Hospital where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
