Three people are now dead following a shooting at the Chaguaramas Boardwalk.

The area was said to be under lockdown as police searched for a group of armed men who opened fire indiscriminately at a group of family and friends around 7:15 on Friday night. 

Three others are said to be in a critical condition at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.

Among the three injured is eight-year-old Jakeem Moses from Pelican Extension, Morvant.

The other two injured men are Ian Brown, 20, of Upper Sea View, Carenage and Keron Jones, 26, of Cleaver Heights, Arima.
