Two Venezuelans were shot and wounded within a three-day period in two separate incidents.
In the latest incident, at about 4 am on Tuesday, a Venezuelan man was walking along Ariapita Avenue in Woodbrook when a gunman approached him and attempted to rob him.
Police say the victim attempted to run away but was shot in the leg four times. The attacker then ran off.
The victim was taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital where he was treated and warded in a stable condition.
