This year’s murder toll has now surpassed last year’s figure and is expected to continue its trend after another bloody weekend.
A construction worker has today become the country’s latest murder victim.
Around 9 am, Jerron Douglas, 19, from Barataria, was shovelling sand at a construction site near his home when three masked men came up to him and shot him multiple times.
T&T Guardian was informed that Douglas lived only a few houses away from his job site, and the police did not believe that he was involved in any criminal activity.
Police are yet to determine a motive for the killing.
