A longtime friend of Wilton’s Yard shooting victim, Stephen Francis, alias ‘Face’, has described the deceased as a person of ‘good character’.
“I have known Face for over twenty years and he is somebody that always had a good character – somebody who is always preaching positive, especially in a place like here, the Graveyard, making sure that people do better things with their lives,” the friend disclosed.
The friend said the deceased tried to bring happiness to everyone in the community where he lived.
“It is a very sad moment to see that these sorts of people who are trying to keep things together, they are the ones being taken away from us.”
“They are the ones trying to keep order in the chaos and trying to show love and change the hearts and the minds of people in here. So he is somebody who will be greatly missed,” the friend, who requested anonymity stated.
Stephen Francis was gunned down Sunday night in Wilton’s Yard about 7.30 pm.
