Cops link shooting to gang rivalry

THE KADOOMENT DAY fatal shooting has been linked by police to gang conflict, despite the victim’s mother saying her son was not a gang member.

Acting Commissioner of Police Tyrone Griffith said Tareid Rock, who was 20, was hanging out with friends near Spring Garden when he became embroiled in an altercation with gunmen.

“They fired upon him, and he ran in the direction of Spring Garden,” Griffith told CBC-TV. “Consequently he was shot and he fell by the wayside next to Stansfeld Scott.”

The police chief said officers had enough evidence to determine the shooting was related to gang rivalry. (CA)
