Pupils and teachers of the Lendore Hindu Primary School were said to be horrified when gunshots rang out in the area yesterday, minutes before school dismissed for the day.

The gunshots came as gunmen killed 21-year-old Jeremy Hernandez in the yard of his School Street, Enterprise property.

According to a police report, residents heard explosions at about 2.20 pm and later found Hernandez, a labourer, bleeding from gunshot injuries. He died at the scene.

Residents told the T&T Guardian yesterday they fear members of the Unruly Gang were “getting back active.” They believe they were also responsible for a recent spike in robberies in the area. Residents are calling for more police patrols in the area, especially as Carnival is just three days away.
