FOOTBALL referee Kyle Carabon was shot and killed in Tableland on Monday night.

Carabon, 25, of Dades Trace was shot dead on the street near the Tableland High School at around 7.18 p.m.

Police responded to residents' reports of gunshots heard in the area and found Carabon's bullet riddled body.

His relatives told reporters at the Forensic Sciences Centre that Carabon worked as a clerk at National Insurance Board and dreamed of becoming an official for FIFA.

He was engaged to be married and was not known to be in any trouble with the law, they said.

“He was an only child. His mother is in shock right now. He was never known to be in any trouble”, the relatives said.

“He never told us if he had been threatened before. All he knows is work, home, football and cars. I don't know who did this or why they did it”.

They believed that he was chased by his killer/s and shot dead.

Officers of the Tableland Police Station and homicide officers responded to the scene.

An autopsy was performed on Carabon's body on Tuesday.
