Teenager shot and killed in carpark

A 15-year-old boy was shot dead in a carpark near his home on Wednesday night.

According to police reports, the deceased was identified as Tyrique Richardson from Building 20, Maloney Gardens.

Richardson was said to be liming with a group of friends in the carpark outside the apartment complex when a vehicle pulled up.

Two men exited the car, dressed in what appeared to be “Muslim garb”, and shot at the group.

Richardson and another man attempted to flee the scene, however, they were pursued.

The two were both shot multiple times.

When the gunmen left the scene, the victims were rushed to the Arima District Hospital.

Richardson was pronounced dead on arrival, while the other victim – said to be an 18-year-old from the same building – was shot to the face.

He was unable to talk properly up to Thursday morning and was warded in a serious condition.

More on this as it becomes available.
