Chavez Anthony Toppin, 25, who was shot in his head last Tuesday, has died.
Toppin was shot on George Street, Port-of-Spain by a man he knew. In fact, he called the name of his killer while being transported to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.
According to police reports, around 8.30 am on Tuesday, police officers were conducting mobile patrols in east Port-of-Spain when they heard several loud explosions.
Upon investigating, they found Toppin lying on the ground along lower George Street, in the vicinity of the health facility.
Three vehicles which were parked along the roadway had been shot at.
The officers notified medical personnel and the wounded man was rushed to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.
However, there was no hope that Toppin would survive as the bullet had shattered on the nerves in the head. He was declared brain dead and it was just a matter of time before he died.
No one has yet been arrested, but police say they have an idea who the suspect it.
