Education and Youth Minister, Senator Ruel Reid is condemning Wednesday night’s killing of 3-year- old Kelecia Matthews in Annotto Bay, St. Mary.
The little girl was killed when unknown assailants opened fire on Cane Lane in Annotto Bay where she and her stepfather were walking.
Minister Reid says robbing the life of such a young and innocent child is a depraved act and should be condemned in all sectors of the society.
He says he’s particularly concerned for the step-father of the child who would have witnessed her demise and is pledging the Ministry’s support.
The Education Minister says this painful ordeal should never be the reality of any parent in this country and must never become the norm.
