Bloodshed continues as another killed in Laventille

Police officers from the Port of Spain Division rushed to the scene of yet another homicide in Laventille on Wednesday morning.

The deceased is yet to be identified.

While information is still coming in, LoopTT was told that the incident took place at about 10:30 am on Wednesday along the Eastern Main Road, in the vicinity of the Laventille Technology Center.

According to initial information, the victim was walking along the roadway when a black Nissan Tiida pulled alongside him.

Several loud explosions were heard, and the victim was then seen lying on the roadway in a pool of blood.

The vehicle then sped away.

The police were notified and a team of officers from the Besson Street Police Station, the Inter-Agency Task Force, and the Homicide Bureau are currently on location.

Police sources told LoopTT that citizens may expect to encounter some traffic in the vicinity of the incident as the area has been cordoned off so that it can be properly processed by Crime Scene Investigators.

This is the latest in a spate of killings which occurred in the Belmont and Beetham areas in recent days. 

Police were on the alert on Tuesday after killings Kevon 'Fish' Joseph was gunned down in Belmont while Alvin Gyam, 33 and Abraham Quamina, were both shot dead in Beetham Gardens. All three killings happened within hours of each other. 

More on this as it becomes available.
