AS DAMIAN STEVENSON TROTMAN, the 20th murder victim, was laid to rest yesterday amidst heavy police presence, young people were advised not to turn to violence to resolve issues.
Reverend Sylvan Payne also reminded the grieving relatives and friends of Trotman that the Lord was still present.
“During your time of sorrow, Jesus does not become distant; He is even closer to you than before. He is always faithful and He will be your refuge and strength in time of war and in every crisis He will be there,” he said before praying for the young people present.
Scores of mourners, some wearing tribute shirts, turned out at the Fairview Church of the Nazarene, Fairview, Christ Church, to bid farewell to the man gunned down in a brazen daylight shooting at Sheraton Mall on March 21.
