As the murder toll in the country continues to climb, one of the latest victims is 31 year old Akeem Newton, who was at home with his son, when he was called out to his death.
The father of two was at home playing with his 14-month son, when a friend called him to lime at a house nearby. Moments later, several explosions were heard and Newton was shot dead outside.
He was killed near his home in Picton Settlement, Diamond Village, San Fernando on Thursday evening. Relatives believe that the young father was set up and lured to his death by his friends. Police reports indicate he was shot several times in the head, abdomen, and shoulder. He died on the spot.
Investigations are continuing.
