Cedros victim identified

Errol Sookbir has been identified as the man who was shot and killed in Cedros yesterday.

The 42-year-old man lived at Perseverance Coconut Estate, Cedros, and was gunned down a short distance away from his home.

According to police reports, Sookbir had left his home at about 6:30 am on Sunday in his Nissan AD Wagon. However, moments after he left the driveway, several loud explosions were heard.

Relatives, on hearing the explosions, rushed out to render aid and found the bullet-riddled body of the 42-year-old man slumped against the driver seat of the car.

Two men were seen fleeing the scene on foot.

An autopsy has since been ordered.

More on this as it becomes available.
