News day / Archer expressed her sorrow via a ‘live’ video feed on her Facebook account in which she called on youths to lay down their weapons.

“I will pray and ask God to forgive the person who pulled the trigger and killed my child.

“My son was going through a lot. He was searching for God.

Last year I had to bury another of my sons and here I have to come once again and bury another. I was in church sitting down when I got a text message saying they kill my child,” Archer said.

Archer also directed her emotions at her son’s murderer and urged the perpetrator to seek forgiveness from God.

“I wish this video could go viral all over so that Mr Gunman can see it.

“Go to God and ask God for peace because you all don’t understand.” According to reports, Harrichand of Carenage was last seen sitting at the corner of St Paul Street and Block 8 in East Port of Spain sometime before 1 am yesterday.
