Laventille drive-by leaves two men shot

Two men are nursing gunshot injuries following a shooting in Laventille on Tuesday night.

Around 7 pm, a white Nissan Tiida drove onto Mentor Alley, Laventille. The occupants of the vehicle reportedly began shooting at a group of men who were at the side of the roadway. The car then sped away from the scene before witnesses could see the license plate.

When the smoke cleared, two men - namely Joel Walker, 33, and Kenneth Best, 56 – were each shot to their legs.

They were taken to the hospital by a female relative where they remained warded up to late yesterday.

More on this as it becomes available.
