Three men are dead and five other people wounded following a gun attack at Le Platte Village, Maraval, on Thursday night.
The dead persons were identified as Collin Letren, Kayode Crichlow, and Joel Le Platte.
In the next couple of seconds, several loud explosions were heard following which the vehicle sped off. Eight persons were shot. A report was made to the Maraval Police and within minutes a large number of police officers and Emergency Health Services were on the scene. Two of the injured were identified as Dominique Le Platte and Dayna Le Platte.
Letren, 25, and Critchlow, 24, died shortly after the shooting. Joel Le Platte was shot in the head and was rushed to the Port of Spain General Hospital. But the CT scanner was not working so he transferred to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mount Hope. Joel Le Platte, 35, later died from his injuries.
