Robinson was shot following an altercation and up to Wednesday, Police were looking into the killing for which two suspects were still being sought.
Circumstances leading up to the incident are still being pieced together though information about the incident suggests this may have been the result of a triangular affair.
Robinson was reportedly struck three times, by gunshot wounds to the back and lay bleeding in a side street just off the main Leeward Highway at Lowmans Hill which remained awash with blood up to Wednesday as passersby and residents reflected on the senseless killing
Alfred John, Glen’s father was a distraught figure when he spoke at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital last Tuesday.
John was puzzled by his son’s death, and pondered how to convey the information to Vanda Robinson, Glen’s mother in Canada.
Glen was the second of five sons; the others being Glenroy, 22; Kevin, 18; and twins Omar and Gamar, 15.
Robinson’s death was yet another in a spate of violent activity that has been shocking this multi -island nation recently. His was the 12th murder for the year.
In another incident that same night, another man, Garveth Foster was shot in the ankle around midnight last Tuesday at Green Hill overlooking capital city Kingstown.
Police investigators have their hands full and resources stretched.
