Two killings in two days
The country’s recent hike in murder continued yesterday as assailants opened fire on four men leaving one dead and another injured in a drive-by shooting in Princes Town. The man’s death took the homicide rate to two. Last year’s figure stood at 351. Police in south Trinidad said they were bracing for reprisal killings after 23 year old Marcus Cooper of Mandingo Road, Indian Walk was shot dead on New Year’s night. Another occupant of the car, 27 year old Stefon Brereton, a labourer, up to yesterday remained warded in stable condition at the San Fernando General Hospital. He was shot seven times in the leg and back. Another occupant of the vehicle, Ojo Sambury 21, was grazed by a bullet and taken to hospital where he was treated and discharged.
