A LONE gunman pretending to be a customer shot a Gasparillo businessman yesterday.
The victim, hardware owner Dhanais Ramnarine, 50, was hit in the neck after being called out of his home and businessplace at Bonne Aventure Road.
Police said around 4.30 a.m. Ramnarine was in his bedroom when a man told him he came to pick up a delivery of hardware material.
Ramnarine went downstairs into the businessplace where he was confronted by a man with a firearm who shot at him several times at close range.
Ramnarine was taken to San Fernando General Hospital, where he was warded.
Gasparillo police officers visited the scene.
