A construction worker, who was deemed a convicted rapist, was shot dead at his job site at KP Lands, Valencia on Friday.
Terry Villafana, 34, succumbed to his multiple gun shot wounds at the Sangre Grande District Hospital while undergoing emergency surgery.
Police said that around 2.15 pm, Villafana along with other men were laying bricks at a box drain in Valencia, when a gunman approached Villafana and opened fire. He fell into the drain bleeding from several injuries while his co-workers took cover. The gunman escaped in a waiting car.
Villafana was taken to Sangre Grande Hospital but died while being attended to in the operating theatre by doctors.
Villifana’s body was taken to the Forensic Science Centre, Federation Park, for an autopsy on Monday.
