Two more murdered in Moruga, La Horquetta


TWO men were killed in separate attacks overnight.

Moruga gardener Roger Singh, 41, was shot dead in his home, while Kevon Robinson, 31, was killed at La Horquetta.

Two men, with jerseys covering their heads, entered Singh's home at Penal Rock Road at around 7 p.m.

Singh began to fight with the men, and his wife ran out of the house to get help.

While running she heard three explosions, and saw the men running out of the house and into the bushes.

Singh's wife found him kneeling beside a bed bleeding from gunshot injuries to the chest.

She raised an alarm, and neighbours called police and paramedics.

Singh however died at the scene.

Ag Supts Gaffar and Nabby, officers of Homicide Region III, Moruga and Princes Town CIDs responded.

The killers were not caught.

And in La Horquetta, Robinson was shot and killed over what police believe was a result of ongoing gang warfare in the district.

He was killed at Phase Five.

The killings took the murder toll to 74, according to an Express tally.
