Brush with death after car shot at in Laventille

Three people narrowly escaped with their lives after unknown assailants shot at a vehicle in which they were travelling over the weekend.

According to reports, Steve Samuel, of Upper Laventille Road, was driving his vehicle in an easterly direction along the Old St Joseph Road at about 6:00 pm on Saturday, when he heard several loud explosions upon reaching the vicinity of John John.

Afraid for his life and the life of two other persons in the vehicle at the time, Samuel sped away.

He made his way to the nearest police station and the vehicle was examined.

Three points of impact were said to be observed by officers, namely on the hood of the vehicle, the left door panel, and the window of the right front door.

Thankfully no one was injured in this incident.

Investigations are continuing.
