Two more murders have been reported in La Horquetta and Moruga.
The latest occurred in La Horquetta where an employee of the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) was shot dead on Friday morning.
The victim has been identified as Kevon Robinson, 31, of Phase 7.
According to a police report, at about 1.30 am, Robinson was on his way to his home when he was ambushed by gunmen who shot him several times. Robinson died on the scene.
Police said that they are bracing for reprisals as an alleged war is brewing between members of the community at Phase 5 and Phase 7.
Meanwhile, Roger Richard Singh, was shot dead in Moruga on Thursday night. Six years ago, he survived after being shot.
Gunmen shot and killed Singh at Penal Rock Road in Moruga, where he had relocated.
Residents said that at about 7 pm, two gunshots rang out, followed by cries for help by Singh’s girlfriend Christifani Williams.
Singh has two children from a previous relationship.
Relatives said two men stormed into the couple’s wooden home and shot the 41-year-old man in the bedroom. Williams was cooking in the kitchen. She ran out and called out for help as the men ran off through nearby bush.
Singh’s father, Thomas Patrice, 72, of Bois Jean Jean in Moruga, said he received a phone call and immediately went to the house, but police did not allow him or other relatives to enter.
Patrice said, “I left there at about 9 pm, so I did not see him. I cannot say why someone would kill him. He was a cool guy.”
