Thursday, July 26, 2018

The son of a retired police inspector was gunned down yesterday in his vehicle in what investigators believe was a gang-related incident.

Two others were wounded, however, up to late yesterday their names were not disclosed and they were said to be at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in Mount Hope receiving medical treatment.

Dane Hazarie, 33, lived at corner King and De Gannes Street in Arima. He was the son of retired Insp Mungal Hazarie.

According to a police report, at about 9.50 am, Hazarie was driving a white Hyundai Elantra along Boys Lane in D’abadie when a gold coloured Nissan Almera drove up to him and stopped.

The occupants emerged from the vehicle and opened fire on Hazarie and two other men who were in the car.

The gunmen then got back into their vehicle, which sped off, in a southerly direction towards the Priority Bus Route.

Hazarie died behind the steering wheel. His body was viewed by the District Medical Officer and removed to the Forensic Science Centre in St James where an autopsy is expected to be done today.

A team of police officers including Northern Division’s Supt Ramkhelawan and Sgt Highly and Homicide’s Insp Shaun Craig and Sgt Stanisclaus visited the scene. No relatives of Hazarie were at the scene.

Investigations are continuing.
