A fruit vendor was shot and killed while selling oranges at Kenny Cyrus Street, Enterprise, Chaguanas, on Tuesday.
Clint Jeffers, aka Charlie, 44, was at the street corner shortly before 6.30 pm when a silver Nissan Tiida drove up and someone in the back seat fired at least 30 shots.
Neighbours alerted a police patrol in the area and Jeffers was taken to the Chaguanas health facility, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Jeffers was arrested years ago for petty theft, but was not known by the police for any major offences. Chaguanas police are continuing inquiries.
