San Fernando man shot dead in suspected robbery attempt

A 57-year-old man was found dead this morning in San Fernando.

The deceased has been identified as Satnarine Rampersad of Titanium Crescent Union Hall San Fernando.

Police were told that around 4.00 am on Thursday morning, police received a call of a disturbance at the victim’s home.

Upon arriving, they were met by some Chinese nationals who do not speak English.

The men directed the officers to an upstairs bedroom, where they found Rampersad’s body lying on his bed.

There was a pool of blood near his head, with what appeared to be a gunshot wound to his chin.

Police noted that Rampersad’s home was not ransacked, however, upon conducting further inquiries, they found that one of the rooms the Chinese nationals was in was ransacked, and there appeared to have been a robbery.

The current theory, until other evidence is provided, is that Rampersad may have attempted to stop a robbery at his building, and was killed in the process.

More on this as it becomes available.
