Margella Eugene, the mother of deceased shooting victim, Vibert Eugene, has told reporters that her son was a quiet boy who had no trouble with anyone.
However she told reporters because of ‘what’s going on’ she warned him to be careful.
The 23 year old was shot in Wilton’s Yard Wednesday afternoon and died at Victoria Hospital about 8:00 pm, according to the police.
Margella Eugene recalled that she last saw the deceased on Tuesday.
“He slept by me and then – it’s not far from me that he lives. He went by his girlfriend. He was by his girlfriend and every morning he does come and feed his birds. He stay there, he cool out, then he go by his friends,” the mother said.
She explained that Wednesday morning when she left home about 4:00 am, her son was not there.
“But I always calling them – I always checking on them. While in my house I pray. I covering them with the blood of Jesus.”
Margella Eugene disclosed that she called her son on Wednesday.
“I tell him he knows what’s going on, just be careful and stay home.”
She said that when she returned home she heard two gunshots.
The mother said she later learned that her son, who was father to a 1-year old son, had been shot.
She described the young man as a quiet individual who is always on his ‘own vibes’ with his friends.
“He always have his little boy with him on the road and I always telling him that’s not a good place to stay, especially at the end there.”
“The way I understand it, he was sleeping and when he get up he hear his friends talking about football. He went next side by the neighbours and he sit down on a chair watching at football,” the mother noted.
