Gunmen wanted to make
a point...to some bad boys
Murder victim's relatives:
THE RELATIVES of murder victim Kerwyn Cobham said yesterday that he was shot dead near his Bamboo Trace, Tunapuna home on Saturday night by men in a car because the gunmen wanted to "make a point" to some "bad boys" in the area.
The two women spoke on the condition of anonymity outside the Forensic Science Centre, St James where an autopsy was done on Cobham's body.
One of the women said, "It was a drive-by shooting and an innocent man get gunned down because Kerwyn was not in anything."
She added that Cobham would have seen the vehicle approaching that night around 10.30 and he would not have tried to leave the scene, "because he know he innocent."
"Them bullets was not for Kerwyn but they wanted to make a point to them fellas in the area and he end up getting pick-up," said the other woman.
Cobham was the father of two children, a boy aged 10, and a girl, nine.
She said that it was they who took him to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex but he died on arrival.
A black Nissan X-trail, similar to the one used in Cobham's killing, was found abandoned in the car park at MovieTowne in Chaguanas hours later.
Homicide Bureau officers are continuing investigations.
