A 25-year-old man was killed by police on Sunday after he was found at the home of a murdered woman and her common-law husband.
Dead is Nigel Antoine from Richplain, Diego Martin.
Reports indicate that Antoine was at the home of double-murder victims Cindy Joseph, 33, and Kadeem Elijah,19, located at Hilltop Drive, Springvale in Claxton Bay.
Police visited the residence with a warrant to search for guns and ammunition. Upon reaching the premises around 6:00am, they found Antoine who opened fire on them. They returned gunfire and shot him to death.
Police say Antoine was known to them; he may have been hiding out in the area.
They did find his firearm at the scene and ammunition at the house.
Last week Friday, Joseph and Hillaire were at home around 1:15am when gunmen entered the house and opened fire on the couple. Upon checking, residents found Joseph and Hillaire bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds. They died at the scene. The gunmen were seen escaping from the area.
Joseph’s son was shot in the leg during the incident.
He was taken to the San Fernando General Hospital for treatment where he remains warded.
