A shooting in the area of Lake View Street has claimed the life of 35-year-old Carton Jarrett Moreira. At around 1:15 p.m. on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, police responded to reports of a shooting incident in said area and upon arrival, officers observed the lifeless body of a male person with two apparent gunshot wounds to the head.

The body was identified as that of Carlton Moreira, a plumber of a Lakeview Street address. Initial investigation revealed that Moreira was walking through an alley when a male person approached him and fired shots in his direction, causing his fatal injuries. Moreira is described as a hard worker who did all he could to stay away from the gang life which engulfs his neighborhood. He is reported to have won a substantial amount of money as a result of running 21 on Tuesday nights Boledo draw. Police are looking at the possibility that robbery may have been the motive and a number of persons from the neighborhood have been detained.

Moreira leaves behind two children a 5 year and 13 year old both of whom are to graduate within the next few days. Sadly their father will not be present.
