Divonte Hernandez (from social media)

(CNS): Officers investigating the murder of Divonte Alejandro Hernandez (25) on Friday morning outside a George Town liquor store have recovered a Honda Fit in the Crewe Road area of the capital that they believe was used in the daylight fatal shooting. Police said no one has been arrested yet, but they are following numerous lines of enquiry as the investigation continues.

The RCIPS has confirmed that a child, understood to be the victim’s young daughter, was present at the scene of the killing, but they did not say if Hernandez was holding the little girl when he was shot multiple times by his assailant, as has been claimed on social media.

Hernandez is the third person to be murdered in Cayman this year. The first was Randy Kelsey Robinson (37), who was fatally stabbed outside a George Town nightclub in May. The three men charged with his murder have denied the allegation and are expected to go to trial before the end of this year.

The other murder was the killing of Omar Ryan in July. Bryan Welcome (41) has been charged with the crime, accused of causing the death during a road rage incident. He has also pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to be tried later this year.

Detectives are appealing for witnesses to Friday’s shooting. Anyone with information is asked to call the RCIPS Major Incident Room at 649-2930. Anonymous tips can be provided to the RCIPS Confidential Tip Line at 949-7777 or the website. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Cayman Crime Stoppers.

    Reflections/Liquor 4 Less has CCTV cameras guys. Share the footage leading up to and following the incident, plus pics of the car, blur out the poor victim and his precious child and let’s see if any useful tips can come from that.

    Let’s be more proactive RCIPS… at least tune into some First 48 episodes for basic actions to take *immediately* after a tragedy like this occurs!

    May this young man RIP. My sincere condolences to his family and friends and may his little princess get all the emotional support she will need to get through this.

    Is the current government or the opposition going to acknowledge that crime is becoming a problem and do something about it?

      The past Governments didn’t see it before their eyes, didn’t predict it, didn’t take preventative action. Did they believe it would go away! They will now blame the current government.

      Well any fool with a basic economics degree could have predicted this would happen… The government is giving away breaks to build hotels but can’t find the locals jobs. This only encourages crime with all the snotty expats coming to the island who are racist towards the locals and Jamaicans… It is what it is, things won’t change until they take some action with proper policies etc… Is it going to take a MP to get robbed to change the outcome, like McKeeva complaining about his 4k utility bill ?

    So, wasn’t the car owned or rented? No docs? No forensic evidence inside to match to any known offender? Nothing on his cell to indicate any recent beef with someone? Was it a rental gun, with traceable history? Nothing RCIPS?

    Don’t base your case on witnesses in Cayman.

        Rental gun? Maybe he had a library card used to rent this gun.

          Hey John – 03@2:40pm. Clearly you haven’t followed recent local news articles. RCIPS recently reported that one “rental” gun was discovered having been used in various crimes, including a murder in West Bay. Also, another appeared on-island which had been used in numerous murders in Jamaica.

          Are you naive or just ignorant?

      Oh my goodness, what would the RCIPS do without you? Should they publish all of the OBVIOUS steps in their enquiries on CNS or CMR?

      I’m sure they’re all sitting at the desks staring at the walls wishing someone from the public like you would come in and explain to them what they need to do. Sheesh.

        7 36am Sometimes they need instructions. The last robbery which started at CNB Savannah and customer followed home has never been solved. This despite thief using her card at ATM so bank has him on camera but police never requesting footage from bank. They were also given info on car and driver but no arrest.
