THE country recorded two more murders between Friday afternoon and early yesterday morning carrying the country's murder figure for the year so far to 86.
The latest killings took place within the Northern Division, with one of the men still unidentified up to late yesterday evening.
In the first incident, police said at around 3.10 p.m., Garnet Edwards, 31, was at his Malabar Extension Road, Arima, home when two gunmen entered and announced a hold-up.
Residents, police said, reported hearing several loud explosions, before Edwards' sister found him dead in a bedroom of the house.
He was shot multiple times about the body, said detectives.
The house was also ransacked.
Police said they believed that Edwards' death came as a result of a robbery gone awry as he was not known to be involved in any criminal activities.
Homicide officers said they have since received key information on the identity of the killers and are confident that arrests would be made soon.
In the second incident, officers of the St Joseph Police Station together with detectives from the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), responded to a report of a shooting incident at Riverside Road, Curepe, around 2 a.m. yesterday.
Police said, upon going to the scene, they found the body of a man clad in a brown three-quarter pants and black jersey lying along the roadway with a bullet wound to the back of the head.
He was said to be of East Indian descent and appeared to be in his mid-20s, said police.
Investigators said the man was not known to members of the community in which he was killed.
They are now calling on members of the public who may have missing male relatives to come forward and assist in the identification of the victim.
Homicide detectives are continuing investigations into the incidents.
