Facebook page for Preston

Tribute page in memory of Preston

Tributes have been pouring in for one of the slain victims of the gun war that has seen four people killed in a week.

A specialist Facebook page in memory of Preston Rivers has been created to allow friends to leave messages following his death.

And the page has been used to appeal for calm after the rise in gun crime.

Preston, 18, died in West Bay on Saturday night. He was sat in a car outside a condominium complex on Andresen Road when he was killed.

Yesterday the page “RIP Preston “Ezeke” Rivers” had more than 150 followers on the site.

The tribute was created by a cousin of Mr Rivers who appealed for the escalating gun crime to stop.

On the information section the creator wrote: “ [sic] my lil’ cuzzie was gunned down over stupidity & I’m beggin, encouraging everyone to be blessed, stop the drama, appreciate life, gun play ain right & now me & my family have to deal with this misfortune.”

One friend wrote on the wall of the page: “My condolences go out to all of your family, my family also. I won’t forget our great times after Ivan when you would come over to Uncle Raymond’s all the time.”

Another added: “This is the 2nd morning i wake up with tears in my eyes…i feel like crap…after crying for hours…i miss you so much pressy.”
