One shot dead, three wounded

BLOODY SCENE: Police and relatives at Kingston Avenue, La Canoa, Santa Cruz, the scene of the shooting death of Jason Thomas, and three other men who are hospitalised with gunshot wounds.

A La Canoa man is dead and three men were hospitalised, after unknown gunmen ambushed them and sprayed them with bullets.

The deceased has been identified as Jason Thomas, from Kingston Avenue, off La Canoe Road, Santa Cruz. Police have not yet released the names of the other three injured men.

Police say minutes after 3 pm yesterday, Thomas was standing outside his house, liming with a group of men. That was when unknown gunmen, armed with rapid fire weapons approached the group and opened fire.

The four men were shot multiple times, and the gunmen escaped on Alfred Street, which is nearby.

They were taken to the Port of Spain General Hospital, where Thomas died from his wounds. The other three men are said to be in a critical condition at hospital.

Police are now searching for four suspects in relation to the shooting. Police sources said yesterday that several bullet casings from multiple firearms were collected by crime scene investigators.
