A 26-year-old was who marked for death after a recent dispute over property was shot and killed in a drive-by in St James.

Chike Denbow, a mechanic, was gunned down while liming with a group of friends at about 8.30 pm at the corner of Alfred Richards Street, St James, when a silver Nissan Tiida vehicle pulled up alongside.

A man in the backseat of the car fired several shots hitting Denbow.

Denbow, of Clifton Hill Road, East Dry River, Port-of-Spain, was taken to hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.

Speaking with Guardian Media yesterday, a relative said Denbow recently began construction of his house and since then “he always had clashes with people about the property and that piece of land where he started building.”

An autopsy revealed that Denbow was shot multiple times to his upper body. Relatives have called on police for justice. Denbow’s murder was the 264 person to be killed for the year.

Investigations are continuing.
