‘Moscow’ shot while asleep

 A 27-year-old man was shot dead as he took an afternoon nap at his San Juan home on Wednesday.

Killed was Akil Chandler, also known as “Moscow”.

Police said that around 3.20 p.m., Chandler was asleep in a small apartment below his family’s home, located off Saddle Road, San Juan. 

Police said two gunmen walked down a track leading to the house, broke open the man’s front door and opened fire as he slept. 

Chandler walked out his door before collapsing in the yard.

The gunmen also shot another man, but the Express was told that he had been taken to Port of Spain General Hospital.

Relatives of Chandler said he was a “limer who had no enemies”.

They said that they could not understand why someone wanted to kill him.

Homicide Bureau officers are continuing investigations.
