A 34-year-old Mamoral citrus vendor was shot dead after leaving a bar near his Leakham Trace, Mamoral home on Sunday afternoon.
Dexter Surrillio spent several hours on Sunday afternoon liming with friends and neighbours at a bar, when he received a phone call.
As he was walking in the direction of his home, a gunman approached and shot him several times, then ran off.
The body was viewed by a district medical officer and taken to the Forensic Science Centre.
Police said yesterday that Surrillio had a criminal record for break-ins and robberies, but began vending in Port of Spain and had vowed to live a crime-free life.
