In Memory of Carlton Grant Jr
We know that children should not go before their parents. The senseless killings have to stop. Well, no one knows the story of this killing but the gun. Residents are still in mourning over the August death of Spragga Benz's son, Carlton Grant (aka Little Wayne) . Carlton was known by many in his community and will be missed.
The police allege that two men were signaled to stop while they rode their bicycles along Church street (downtown Kingston). The men allegedly pulled guns and fired at the police, after which gun fire was returned.
Grant was found with gunshot wounds and died in the hospital. Police say a .45 Caliber gun was found on him.
Several eyewitnesses have stated they saw the police shoot Carlton. I wasn't there so I don't know, but I do know that sometimes we give authority to the wrong people. Police have to wonder why nobody want to turn the gunman in. Because people don't know who feh trust.
The truth will be revealed. Rest in Peace Little Youth.
