The man who was shot dead in Aripo on Wednesday has been identified as Quincy Williams from Trincity.

The deceased, police said, was identified by relatives.

An autopsy performed at the Forensic Science Center in St James has confirmed that he was shot to death.

According to police reports, at about 6:00 am that day, residents of Aripo Road, Aripo, told police that the body of a man had been spotted at the side of the roadway.

Officers from the Northern Division, under the supervision of Snr Sup Daniel, responded and they found Williams lying in a pool of blood.
