'Grover' shot dead in San Juan

The noises of a child’s birthday party in San Juan on Sunday masked the gunshots which killed 33-year-old Roland Phillip of Sunshine Avenue, San Juan.

According to police reports, Phillip, who is also known in the area as “Grover” was last seen alive around 4.45 pm, standing outside his neighbour’s home. At the time, there was a birthday party which a young relative of his was attending.

When neighbours came out at 5 pm, they observed Phillip lying in a pool of blood along the roadway.

He appeared to have been shot multiple times.

The police were notified, however, Phillip succumbed to his injuries before their arrival.

An autopsy was expected to be performed today at the Forensic Science Center in St James to determine the cause of death.
