Gunshot victim dies at hospital

An uniden­ti­fied man, who was shot in Laven­tille on Wednes­day suc­cumbed to his in­juries at hos­pi­tal hours lat­er.

Ac­cord­ing to a po­lice re­port, short­ly af­ter 1 pm, the vic­tim, along with an­oth­er man, was walk­ing along St Paul Street when a gun­man walked up to them and opened fire. Both men at­tempt­ed to run away but one was shot.

The oth­er man man­aged to es­cape. Po­lice said they are not cer­tain if the sec­ond man was shot and in­jured dur­ing the in­ci­dent.

A team of of­fi­cers from the In­ter-Agency Task Force, who re­spond­ed, took the wound­ed man to the Port-of-Spain Gen­er­al Hos­pi­tal for treat­ment.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions are con­tin­u­ing.
