Police said a National Palace guard did not kill post graduate college student Gregory Saint-Hilaire, as his schoolmates had accused.

Saint-Hilaire was shot in the back during a protest in October at Normal Superior School to denounce insecurity in Haiti. Schoolmates who witnessed the shooting swiftly said a National Palace guard was the shooter. 

On Wednesday, police spokesperson Jonet Vital said their investigation revealed the shooter used a handgun, so it could not have been a palace guard. The police hinted that National Palace guards don’t carry handguns. Source
