A worshipper who exited a mosque and was seated in his car, in the carpark, was shot dead last night in Arima by two masked gunmen as Muslims observe the Holy month of Ramadan.

Dead is Quincy Peters also known as “Tractor”.

According to reports, around 7.30 pm Peters was seated in his car in the carpark of the Masjid al Falaah, Railway Road, in Arima, when gunmen opened fire on him.

He died inside the car.

Muslims are currently celebrating the Holy Month of Ramadan which culminates with the Eid ul Fitr observance on Friday.

Peters is said to have gone to the mosque to break his fast.

Peters had last year been held for questioning in connection with the double murder of Haffiza Rose Mohammed and teenager Videsh Subar.

Mohammed and Subar were brutally murdered at Mohammed’s Malabar home on June 28, last year.

The pair’s throats were slit and several items, including Mohammed’s car, were stolen from the house.

Three men—including Mohammed’s brother 54-year-old Solomon Baksh—were eventually charged in connection with the murder. Also charged were Devon Edwards, 35 and Wayne Liverpool, 25.
