The relatives of 45-year-old Brian Taitt say they are fearful after he was shot dead at his Harding Place, Cocorite, home early on Wednesday morning.
Speaking with Newsday at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, relatives said they did not know why anyone would want to murder Taitt, who worked as an electrician and were frightened for their lives after his murder.
Taitt’s murder comes less than two weeks after Roland Isaac, was also gunned down at a parlour in Harding Place.
“There’s nothing you can do any more to try and be safe because if you avoid going out they will come in your house to rob you and kill you.
This place just gone through,” one relative said when asked what could be done to be safe.
“I’m really frightened about going out in the community any more.
We don’t know why anyone would want to kill him or even if there was a reason.
He was an honest man. Very upfront, he wouldn’t censor anything but he was also very humble.”
Relatives said Taitt had three children who were already grieving his death.
