Gyro vendor Elias Dabbourah will be laid to rest today following a funeral service at the St Joseph RC Church, Bacolet. The funeral service is expected to begin at 10 am.

Dabbourah, 30, died at the Scarborough General Hospital around 11.39 on Saturday, five days after he was shot in the head by a gunman while he and a worker were off-loading items from a van outside of his business place on Milford Road, Crown Point.

The gunman and an accomplice escaped on foot. Robbery is believed to be the motive.

ASP David Powder, head of the Tobago Division, on Monday confirmed two suspects are being questioned in connection with the murder. He said the investigation is ongoing and still at a sensitive stage.

Tobago Tourism and Hoteliers Association vice-president Carol-Ann Birchwood-James said the organisation is expected to discuss the death of the young businessmen at a meeting this week.

Saying the association has a protection committee, which includes police and other national security agencies, Birchwood-James said members are expected to make recommendations to make Tobago safer. She recently told Newsday, police should review their security plans for the Crown Point area. Dabbourah was shot less than 30 seconds drive away from the Crown Point Police Station.
