A 43-year-old labourer was gunned down near his South Oropouche home on Thursday night.

The man pulled out a firearm and opened fire on James multiple times before running off.

James’ relatives took him to the San Fernando General Hospital where he died around 8:25pm

Police officers responded and crime scene investigators retrieved six spent nine-millimetre shell casings at the crime scene.
