Las Lomas man surrenders to police for murder of teenager Isabella Teelucksingh

Days after a manhunt was launched to find the man who shot and killed a 15-year-old girl in Las Lomas, police said the suspect is now in custody after he surrendered.

The man who murdered 15-year-old Isabella Teelucksingh, turned himself over to police at the San Fernando homicide office around 4 pm on Tuesday.

Teelucksingh of Kay Road on Savary Road and her aunt, Hema Boodoo, 20, of Kelly Village, Caroni, were both shot in Los Lomas on Sunday evening when a man shot at a group of people walking along the road with a shotgun.

Reports said the incident was initiated around 7 pm on Sunday when the suspect and another man had an argument that turned physical. The suspect then went to his home on Savary Road where he argued with others on the road.

He then came out with a shotgun and fired it once at the group, hitting the two women before he ran away.

Teelucksingh was shot in the head and died at hospital, while Boodoo received a bullet wound to the pelvic area and had to undergo emergency surgery.
