Teen shot dead in Siparia

A shooting in Siparia last night has left a 19-year-old man dead.

The victim is Derrick St John of La Brea. 

St John was inside the house at Sennon Village Extension, in an area known as “Backayard”, around 10:30 pm when a black Honda Vezel with four men stopped in front of the premises. 

One of the occupants came out of the vehicle and called out to St John. 

The assailant then entered the house and several loud explosions were heard. 

The suspect then returned to the vehicle which sped off. 

St John was found lying on the left side and face down in the corner of a room to the northern side of the house.

Crime scene investigators recovered 15 spent shells and four projectiles at the scene.
