A man cutting grass at the corner of Achong Street and South Quay, Port of Spain, was shot and killed on the morning of May 3.

Reports say a man sitting in his vehicle on Achong Street heard several loud explosions around 9.25 am. He left his car to check where the sound came from and found the victim, Corey "Small Mouth" Riley, a labourer from San Juan, lying on his back in a pool of blood with apparent gunshot wounds. The man called the police.
