Gang Members Detained During SOE were Not Involved in Killing of Teen

Chester Williams

On Sunday evening, seventeen-year-old Michael Henry was fatally injured during a drive-by shooting at the roundabout near the intersection of Fabers Road and the George Price Highway. He was inside a vehicle along with four other persons when a black SUV drove up and fired multiple shots. Rudolph Gladden was also injured during that shooting. Today, ComPol Williams confirmed that the shooting was not carried out by any of the gang members who were released two days earlier.

“No, that is not true. That person was not held under the SOE at all. And in respect of whatever discussions were had in prison between those persons who were detained, I would yield to Mister Dawson from Prison or Mister Rosado. They were the ones who were involved in those discussions. I was not a part of it so I am not that privy to the discussions and what was arrived at so I would yield that to them.”
