Family member charged in murder of 2-y-o in Trelawny
The police have confirmed that the man who was accused of shooting a family of three in Mack Hill, Trelawny, causing the death of two-year-old Adrian Campbell, has been charged with murder.
He has been identified as 20-year-old Anthony Findlay, the cousin of little Adrian's stepfather.
Findlay, otherwise called 'Boy Blue' also of Mack Hill, was charged on Wednesday afternoon with Murder, Illegal possession of firearm and using a Prohibited Weapon to Commit Murder.
It is reported that about 7:30 p.m., on Sunday, the baby boy was taken by his mother and stepfather to purchase ice cream at a nearby shop in Mack Hill, when they were approached by Findlay, with whom they had a dispute two days before.
Findlay reportedly brandished a handgun and open fire at the couple who managed to speed away in their car.
They drove to another shop in close proximity and discovered that young Adrian who was sitting in the rear seat of the car, had being shot.
Adrian was rushed to the Falmouth Hospital where he was pronounced dead, while Findlay who fled the scene was later picked up by the police during an operation carried out in Duncans, Trelawny.
Commanding Officer in Charge of the parish, Winston Milton, told the STAR that he is using this incident to implore residents within the parish to report domestic related matters to the police before they escalate into bloodshed, or murder.
