Police said that at about 6.30 am, Alfredo "Freddo" Alexander of Second Caledonia, Morvant was standing with others when a dark-coloured vehicle pulled up and two men came out shooting in the direction of the group.

Alexander and the others ran. The killers then got back into their vehicle and drove off.

After the gunmen left, residents found Alexander in a drain. His body was later removed to the Forensic Science Centre, St James for autopsy.

Alexander was one of two people murdered between Monday night and Tuesday morning, taking the murder toll to 83 for the year.
