Chaguanas resident Allan Mohammed was killed in a police-involved shooting in his community early Friday.
Reports are sketchy but Guardian Media understands Mohammed, 28, was shot by officers while he was in his black SUV around 10.30 am, allegedly after he was involved in a confrontation with them as his vehicle approached theirs along Crown Trace, Enterprise. Mohammed allegedly drew a Mac11 firearm during the incident and officers opened fire on him.

Chaguanas Mayor Gopaul Boodhan says he intends to stamp out illegal drag racing in the borough after receiving complaints that the stretch of roadway on the northern side of the Ministry of Agriculture head office and along Connector Road, Charlieville are being used as drag strips at nights.
“This cannot be tolerated and it’s illegal, I am asking for people to refrain from this activity or feel the full brunt of the law. There are too many accidents and road deaths across T&T,” Boodhan said during an interview at the Borough head office on Friday.
