Residents of the community mounted roadblocks some time after the incident which transpired minutes after 11 p.m., however, it was soon cleared by the police.

Residents allege that Soyoga Cooke was dropping his brother Gary Cooke at a friend’s house in the community when they were stopped by the police and asked what they were doing there.
