Homicide investigators have said Seraphine, 17, Saint Lucia-born and the city’s ninth murder victim of the year, was simply walking from one apartment building within the complex to another when he was fatally shot.

Seraphine was shot about 2 a.m. after an altercation with two men. Homicide Det. Tam Bui said that “Trevor was a recent immigrant from St. Lucia. His only mistake was walking from one friend’s building to another.”

The cold blooded killing sparked a hunt for two brothers who Bui has described as “very dangerous people.”

Bui previously asked for the public’s help in locating some items pertaining to the murder.

“I am appealing to community members who knowingly purchased any of these items to please return them to 23 Division (5230 Finch Ave. W.).” He was referring to a block sale weekend event poster at 44 Willowridge Rd. N. on March 20, where evidence in connection with the murder of Seraphine may have been sold.
