Tuesday, December 10, 2013

A 30-year-old man was killed in a shooting near his home in East Dry River, Port-of-Spain, on Sunday night. According to police reports, around 10.30 pm residents of Clifton Hill Circular Road, East Dry River, reported hearing a volley of gunshots. Officers of the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) responded and while searching the area they found a man lying unconscious in a drain with gunshot wounds to his head, chest and back. 


The victim, who was later identified as Clifton Hill resident Hayden Figaro, was taken to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital where he died. Immediately after the shooting, police searched the area for his attackers. However, they came up empty-handed. Homicide detectives said Figaro was not know to them and a motive for his murder was yet to be determined. His murder pushed this year’s toll to 368, according to a tally complied by the T&T Guardian. 



Insp Sahadeo Singh and detectives of the Besson Street CID are continuing investigations.
