AN Arima man who was shot nine times after buying doubles last week has died in hospital.
Dead is 47-year-old Sheldon Isaac of Peytonville, Carapo.
According to police reports, last Sunday morning Isaac was standing in the vicinity of Spancrete and O’Meara Road, Malabar, when he was approached by a man who fired several shots in his direction hitting him numerous times.
He had just finished purchasing two doubles.
