Relatives puzzled by killing of Belmont man

 THE relatives of Vernon Jason Tosh were up to last night still trying to determine why he was shot and killed on Sunday morning near his home in Belmont.

Police said that around 8 a.m. Tosh, 25, was walking along Argyle Street, Belmont, when he was approached by a gunman who opened fire on him. Residents heard the gunshots and contacted the Belmont police who sped over to the scene and took him to the Port of Spain General Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

A female relative of Tosh was at the Forensic Science Centre, Federation Park, Port of Spain, yesterday.

She did not want to be identified by name.

“All Vernon does is go to work and comes straight back home. He does not lime. He does not stay out late and did not have much to do with people in the area so I don’t understand why this happened,” she said.

She said he had been living in Tobago for almost a year and two weeks, ago when he returned, he immediately began working in a National Petroleum Gas Station located along Tragarete Road, Newtown.
