Two murders minutes apart

...killings in Tunapuna, El Dorado


Two men were gunned down  minutes apart on Monday night.

The first shooting occurred at St Cecelia Street, Tunapuna, at around 9p.m.

Police said Akido Irving was liming on the roadside when he was approached by a gunman who opened fire on him.

Irving was shot multiple times and died at the scene.

Less than 30 minutes later, homicide officers were called to College Road, El Dorado, where the bullet-riddled body of Shaquille Henry was discovered.

Police are yet to determine whether the murders were linked.

Autopsies would be performed at the Forensic Science Centre in St James today.
