Arima man gunned down

Sunday, December 3, 2017

Investigations are continuing into the murder of Andre “Beenie” Prince of Arima. Prince was gunned down yesterday morning.

According to a police report, at about 2.30 am Prince was at an area in Arima known as the Congo when he was approached by a masked gunman who opened fire on him. Prince fell to the ground where he died. Police said they are yet to determine a motive for the killing.

A close friend of Prince, who wished not to be identified, told the Sunday Guardian that Prince was killed out of envy. He described his friend as a “humble, kind and loving person”.

“He was very respectable to the people around him. He was well-known as Bee and Beenie,” Prince’s friend said.
