The funeral of Hasley "Teach" Mack is expected to be held on Tuesday in Port of Spain, one week after his shooting death.
Mack, the 47-year-old man who was caught with a stray bullet during a drive-by in Morvant earlier this week, will be laid to rest at the Tunapuna Public Cemetery after a funeral service at the Trinity Cathedral on Queen Street which starts at 11 am.
Relatives yesterday thanked everyone, especially the people in Mack’s community, for the support and love that they expressed since his death.
“Everyone is showing us so much support on a nightly basis.” said a relative “It seems like the fact that he is gone is now soaking into the minds of many people.”
Relatives said neighbours and friends of Mack’s are showing up at his Coconut Drive home on a nightly basis to show support and pay respects.
Relatives added that there was so many people who wanted to be present at his service that the venue had to be changed.
Mack was shot dead on Tuesday last while he was going to get bread at a mini-mart on Lady Young Avenue, Morvant. Two other men, James Julian and Jhamali Haywood, were also shot in the drive-by. Julian died from his wounds while Haywood survived the ordeal, and is being treated at hospital.
No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting.
