Spread the word
There were murders in St James, Diego Martin and Arouca over the past 24 hours. In one instance, there is talk that the wrong man was killed.

Andrew Dominic Noel, 28, Dundonald Hill, St James, was shot dead while on his way home from a party at 1.30 am on Sunday.

Noel, a construction worker,  boarded a taxi at the Western Main Road, St James with three other men. Police believe one of the other passengers is a gang member marked for death by a rival gang.

As the taxi reached Dundonald Hill, several gunmen approached the car and opened fire, hitting Noel more than ten times as he attempted to exit the vehicle. Noel died on the spot. The driver and other occupants including the gang member escaped unharmed.

Noel’s mother Donna Noel said before her son left home on Saturday evening, she got a premonition that something bad was about to happen. She said her son was not involved in any illegal activities.

Donna added, “It’s a real tragedy what happened. Since Thursday in work I got a bad stomach pain and I didn’t know why. To me this was a premonition of bad things to come. I prayed for my family to be safe but my prayers were unanswered. He was a hard-working young man.

He worked construction. This is all so sad.”
