McDonald's branch manager gunned down at restaurant
Police are investigating an apparent hit on a McDonald's employee which occurred on Monday.
Loop TT was informed that around midnight, Ashmeed Mohammed, a branch manager at McDonald's on Cipriani Boulevard, was at the restaurant when there was a knock on the door.
While staff continued cleaning the restaurant, three armed men entered the building.
Police were informed that explosions were heard and Mohammed was found dead at the scene.
The men escaped in a waiting Tiida vehicle.
No other employee was harmed in the incident, nor were any items stolen, leading police to believe that Mohammed was the target.
McDonald's has since issued a release on the murder.
