Minister Kareem Musa to Meet with Families of Triple Homicide Victims in San Pedro
Minister of Home Affairs, Kareem Musa, has agreed to meet with the families of last week’s triple homicide victims in San Pedro. On Monday, the families of Delmar Rodriguez, his daughter Amari Rodriguez, and Carlos Chi issued a release seeking an audience with the minister. The families are requesting to have a say in the direction of the investigation, and are requesting that an independent attorney be included to represent their interests. Minister Musa has responded to the families’ call for a meeting, and told the media yesterday that he will be granting their request.
Kareem Musa, Minister of Home Affairs: “I don’t see it as a demand. This is not a hostage situation by any means. I believe that the police department is quite on top of the ball when it comes to this particular investigation. We have gathered evidence, individuals have been charged but in relation to their information that they want to share I by all means would want to meet with them to hear out their concerns and so I don’t perceive it as a demand but rather a request for us to have a sit down to discuss a situation which has plagued San Pedro for quite some time like I’ve said before it’s been decades of this type of culture, this type of drug dealing that happens in San Pedro and so it’s something that we have to address and if it means me sitting down with them to hear them out absolutely I would do that.”
Four persons were also injured in the shooting, and are now on the road to recovery.
