KINGSTON, Jamaica — Students of University of Technology have issued a call for the police to increase their presence around the institution in light of the brutal attack on one of their own on Wednesday.
“Right now we are in fear; what happen to Shanique Walters could have happened to anyone of us,” said one student from the school.
She was part of a group of students, who today arrived at school dressed in black to mourn the passing of Walters.
Police report that 22-year-old Walters was shot dead while heading home from school by robbers travelling in a car.
“The police continue to monitor areas such as Papine [which] they consider to be violent prone areas but continue to turn a blind eye to areas like Hope Pastures. This has to stop,” another student said.
According to the student the attack on Walters was just one of several carried out by criminals in and around the area in recent months.
