A 35-year-old Caparo man was shot in both legs as he arrived home around 9 pm on Friday. Lyndon Ramoutar, an employee of National Quarries Limited, was accosted by two men and shot in both legs. He was taken to the Chaguanas Health Facility and later transferred to the Accident and Emergency Unit, at the Mt Hope Hospital, where emergency surgery was performed. Ramoutar, police said, told them as he arrived home two men came to him asking his name. As he answered he was shot.


“He fell to the ground and asked that the ambulance be called to take him for medical treatment. But while waiting for the ambulance, a relative rushed him for medical attention,” his father, Dipnarine Ramoutar, said. Senior Supt Johnny Abraham and acting Supt Sahadeo Singh, who both lived in the neighbourhood mounted a search for the men. Several vehicles were searched during the process. Abraham has promised that, “no stone will be left unturned to apprehend the assailants”.


This incident in Caparo and environs has hit home as residents said they were keeping close watch on any undesirable elements in the community. Several businessmen have now opted to increase security personnel and surveillance, especially for the Christmas holidays, one businessman said.
