No leads in Tobago's sixth murder probe

POLICE are continuing investigations into the murder of Akil Andrews, 36, who was shot five times at his Black Rock apartment last Saturday.

ACP Ansley Garrick told Newsday on Wednesday nothing new has developed in the investigation.

Snr Supt Jeffrey George on Wednesday also said police are still waiting for a pathologist to come from Trinidad to do the autopsy.

A man killed Andrews, who was originally from Mt Hope, in the presence of his girlfriend, 18, around 9pm. Newsday was told the man walked into the room, shot Andrews, and walked out of the apartment and down the street. Neighbours called police on hearing gunshots, and and on their arrival the police found Andrews lifeless on the ground.

He moved to Tobago last November to help his sister with her merchandising business. He was the island’s sixth murder victim for 2019.
