The Po­lice Ser­vice said Johnathan Ram­roop, a labour­er of Dow Vil­lage, Cal­i­for­nia, was charged with mur­der, wound­ing with in­tent and pos­ses­sion of firearm and am­mu­ni­tion on Tues­day fol­low­ing ad­vice re­ceived from Deputy Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Pros­e­cu­tions Joan Hon­ore Paul.

On Fri­day Au­gust 3, 2018, at 5.15 am, the vic­tims were pro­ceed­ing in a sil­ver Nis­san Ti­i­da along Brechin Cas­tle Road, when they were ap­proached by two men who shot at them.
