MOMENTS after completing work on Sunday evening, a father of three was shot dead on his way to enter his nearby car.
Dead is Carlos Samuel, 50, a straightener and painter employed with the Public Transport Services Corporation (PTSC) at Lady Hailes Avenue, San Fernando.
The father of three adult children lived at Hobson Trace off Khanai Road North, Barrackpore.
Police said, shortly after 4 pm, having completed his work shift, Samuel walked towards his car parked near main exit gate of the PTSC’s south garage.
Gunshots rang out and moments later, a co-worker discovered Samuel near a wire fence gasping for breath with gunshot wounds to the stomach. The gunman, while running away, also fired shots in the direction of the co-worker who escaped unhurt.
Samuel was taken to the nearby San Fernando General Hospital where he subsequently died.
Police from the San Fernando station and Homicide Bureau (Region III) visited the scene and searched the area for the killer but he was not found.
