Spread the word
A homeless man was stabbed to death by a security guard outside the KFC restaurant at Independence Square, Port-of-Spain on Sunday.

This took place after the homeless man was earlier ordered out of the restaurant for making strange demands of staff and photographing them with his cellphone.

The guard, 22, surrendered to police who were at the scene looking for clues and interviewing witnesses.

The dead man was identified as Jameel Douglas, 33, of no fixed place of address.

Police said just before 10 am, a fight between the guard and Douglas erupted outside the establishment.

Douglas was stabbed and collapsed on the road along Broadway in front of a vending cart. Eyewitnesses immediately notified the police.

Policeresponded. The body was viewed by the district medical officer who ordered its removal to the Forensic Science Center, Federation Park for an autopsy on Monday.

A statement from KFC franchise holder, Prestige Holdings, confirmed the incident, but denied reports which suggested he was seeking to use the bathroom or purchasing an item at the outlet. Rather, it said the outlet manager asked a guard to escort Douglas outside after he began making strange demands of staff and taking pictures of them with his phone. The company said the incident was unfortunate, offered condolences to the man’s family and said it was cooperating fully with the police.

By-standers gathered outside the restaurant after the area was cordoned off by the police. Soon afterwards, several of the employees were taken away in a police vehicle.

Homicide officers are continuing investigations.
