45-year-old man gunned down in Tunapuna

The Tunapuna Market was the scene of a murder on Monday night.

Around 9 pm, 45-year-old Atiba Joseph of Mohammed Trace, Tunapuna, was with a group of people near WASA’s compound at St Augustine Circular when a man approached and shot several times.

The group scampered and Joseph began running along the Priority Bus Route to escape, but the gunman followed him, firing more shots.

The suspect escaped, but Joseph collapsed near the market. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
