The “allies” of a murdered police officer orchestrated the shootings that took 15 lives in Delmas to avenge his death, the general director of the police force said Wednesday.
“In reaction to Guerby Geffrard’s assassination his allies conducted the shooting this morning,” police chief Léon Charles said in a press conference.
Geffrard was shot dead earlier Tuesday by two men in a motorcycle drive-by.
