2 masked gunmen kill Maloney man
A MALONEY man was shot dead on Wednesday night while a body found in Matura on Wednesday afternoon remained unidentified up to last night.
Police said around 10 p.m. on Wednesday, Kareem Martineau, 18, was liming with friends at Building 11 in Maloney when two masked gunmen approached the group and opened fire.
Martineau was hit several times about the body while the two gunmen ran off. Martineau’s friends remained unharmed.
Martineau’s relatives who heard the gunshots contacted the police while others took him to the Arima Hospital where he died while undergoing treatment.
At the Forensic Science Centre in St James yesterday, Martineau’s relatives said they did not know what happened.
Investigations are meanwhile continuing into the discovery of an unidentified body found on Wednesday afternoon along the Toco Main Road in Matura.
Police said they received an anonymous phone call which led them to the gruesome discovery. The body may have been placed at the side of the road about three weeks ago, police said.
Police also said they were unable to determine the sex of the individual.
Matura police are continuing investigations. —GG
