Investigations revealed that Findley and a male cousin were embroiled in a conflict. Findlay reportedly left the scene and returned with a firearm, which was used to open fire at his cousin, who was seated in a Honda motor car.

It was reported that the bullets missed the intended target and hit Campbell — the two-year-old boy — who was seated in the rear of the car. The boy was rushed to the Falmouth General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Findlay fled the scene but was subsequently nabbed by lawmen during a stop-and-search operation in the parish.

A date is to be set for the accused's first court appearance.
