Tobago’s first murder was Kurt Clarke, of Lambeau, who was shot and killed while driving in his car through Orange Hill Road, Prospect, Tobago.
Reports say a woman and a four-year-old child were also in the car when the incident happened. The woman was also shot and wounded, however, the child was physically unharmed.
The second murder victim was Dale “Redman” Boucher.
Boucher’s bullet-riddled body was discovered on the roadway in Roxborough by residents of the area who heard the explosions.
The third Tobago murder victim was Junior ‘Copper’ Roberts, 34, of Buccoo New Road, Buccoo.
According to reports, Roberts was driving his silver grey Nissan Almera east along Auchenskeoch Road, Buccoo, around 9.35 pm last Sunday when several gunshots were heard. The vehicle later spun out of control and ran off the roadway into some bushes.
Roberts was taken out the vehicle and placed on the pavement by passers-by and officers from the Old Grange Police Station were called. He was rushed to the Scarborough General Hospital in a police vehicle, but succumbed to his injuries while undergoing emergency surgery around 10.20 pm. He was reportedly shot three times in his chest.
