Man shot dead during fight

...toll now stands at 192

Chaguanas villager Michael Price was shot and killed during a fight at Africa Grounds, Enterprise Thursday night.

The death of Prince, 34, has been recorded as the 192nd homicide for the year. A month ago, when attorney Dana Seetahal was killed on her way home in Port of Spain, the murder toll stood at 160. There has been a killing every day since then.

Law enforcement officers have also killed 24 citizens this year so far.

Police were told that at around 9.30p.m., Prince was at the recreation ground when he was seen involved in a physical altercation with a man. Prince was shot by the man, and fell. The man stood over him and shot him three more times. The motive of the killing is unknown.
