Police officers' dad gunned down at front door

The father of two female police officers was gunned down at his Diego Martin home on the Divali holiday as he went to answer a call at his front door.

Police reports indicate that around 12:30 pm on Tuesday, 63-year-old Charles Campbell was at his home along Eligon Avenue, Diego Martin, with one of his daughters, when they heard someone calling out to them.

Campbell responded, and shortly afterwards, a series of explosions were heard.

The police and emergency health services were notified, however, Campbell died while receiving treatment.

Campbell’s other daughter, who is also a police officer, does not live at the family’s Diego Martin home.

Police have no motive for this killing, and will not definitively say if the 63-year-old man was targeted because of his family.

However, senior police officers told LoopTT that the relation of the deceased to two officers had left them very concerned.

Investigators have promised that “no stone will be left unturned” to identify and arrest Campbell’s killer.
