A man in the wrong place, at the wrong time.

This is how grieving mother Sandra Francois, of St James, described her son Ricky Francois and the circumstances surrounding his death in a drive-by shooting incident on Saturday night.

Francois said her son, who was 29, was standing by the door of a Danesbury, Black Rock, St Michael bar run by a friend, Bertrand Barker, when gunmen opened fire.

“It was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time,” she told the DAILY NATION.

“He was there backing the door and he got three shots in his back. He tried to run but only got to the back door and died.”

She described her football-loving son as faithful to his family and friendly with even people he did not know.
