Leader of the Opposition, Peter Phillips is condemning the murder of Meadowbrook High School student, Mickolle Moulton and is urging the Arnett Gardens community to work along with the police to identify and bring those responsible to justice.

“This brutal killing of the 17-year-old and the shooting of her younger sister, signal a new low to which our society has plunged in relation to crime and violence,” Phillips notes.

“Here is a girl who has committed herself to her academic studies so she could make her contribution to her family, community and country. She has been brutally cut down before she could fulfill her potential.” Phillips said.

The student was slain while asleep in her home on Tenth Street, Arnett Gardens, over the weekend.

“The community, must work hand in hand with the police and spare no effort in bringing the perpetrators to justice. I offer condolences to the family, community, schoolmates and teachers; and pray for a speedy recovery for her sister who suffered injury in the attack.”
