A suspected thief who was caught by his victims, ended up
dead after his accomplice's gun failed to fire as they left the crime scene.
The incident happened at Edmond Road, off the Eastern Main Road, Valencia, at around 3 p.m on Sunday. Police said that two men staged a robbery at a shop, beating the proprietor and several of his children, before stealing $500, and jewelry.
The suspects left the scene but were chased and caught by the proprietor and another man. One of the suspects, who was armed with a gun, reportedly pulled the trigger several time but nothing happened.
He ran away. His alleged accomplice was captured and his hands and feet tied. When police arrived, the man was unresponsive. He was taken to the Sangre Grande Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. His identity was unknown up to this morning.
Inspector Morgan, Sergeant Legendre and Corporal Jones visited the scene. Two men are subjects in the investigation.
