Monday, January 13, 2014

A 47-year-old Arima man is fighting for his life after being shot near his home yesterday. According to reports, around 9.45 am, Sheldon Isaac, of Savannah Road, Peytonville, Arima, went to purchase doubles from a group of vendors at the corner of Spancrete Boulevard and O’Meara Road, Arima. Eyewitnesses told police when Issac was returning to his green Toyota Corolla, which was parked nearby, he was confronted by a gunman. 


The gunman drew a gun and shot Isaac several times in his chest, head and right arm. As Isaac collapsed next to his car, the gunman ran away. Northern Division Police led by Sgts Toorie and Katwaroo arrived on the scene within minutes and took Isaac to the Arima Health Facility.  Isaac was then transfered to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mt Hope, where he remained warded in a critical condition, up to late yesterday. Police arrested a man fitting the description of the suspect near the scene.
