It was Friday evening when family members of Kenneth Eulin Jr and Gromyko Symonette learnt of their killing in the Fort Fincastle area.
Kenneth and Gromyko were two of many gathered on a porch in the neighborhood enjoying the Friday evening.
Two men, armed with guns, walked up and shot in the direction of the two men, including another man, who would die later in hospital from injuries sustained from the shooting.
Monalisa Lee, who is Gromyko’s mother, said she was at home when the incident happened. She was alerted by children in the neighbourhood.
“They saw it was my son. So, they come run down the hill calling my name saying ‘Yellow (Gromyko) get shoot,’” she said.
Gromyko was a lifeguard at a major resort and left behind a four-year-old child.
His mother said he was charming and humorous and the second of two children.
However, last year, Gromyko was being sought by police for the murder of Keshawn Fortune, an area resident of Fort Fincastle. He was seen in a police wanted poster. It is not known if he was ever charged with the crime.
Kenneth, the second victim killed in the shooting was described as a loving and friendly person. “My son was always kind and caring and he helped anybody who he could help,” his mother Lori Francis who said she was alerted to the killing while on the island, where she lives.
Kenneth was self-employed and was a jack-of-all-trades.
He left behind two girls– a 17-year-old and a 4-year-old.
The third victim was identified as Kistin Cash.
