10 held in connection with Cocorite shootings

Ten persons are currently in custody following police exercises in the Western Division.

The exercises were conducted by officers of the Western Division Task Force, the Western Division CID, the K9 Unit, and the Trinidad and Tobago Regiment.

They took place between 2:00 am and 9:00 am on Thursday and was led by Sup Dominque, Inspector Vincent, and Sgt Arneaud, among several others.

The suspects were detained in relation to inquiries into reports of shootings in the Cocorite area recently.

The incidents are said to be a result of an ongoing war between the Rasta City Gang and the Muslim Gang, which occupy the community.

More on this as it becomes available.
