Ste Madeleine man shot and wounded by intruder

A man was shot while asleep at his home in Ste Madeleine early yesterday (Tuesday 2nd July, 2024).

The victim was identified as 24-year-old Amarnath Bagaloo, of Herrera Trace, Friendship Village, Ste Madeleine.

Bagaloo was sleeping in a bedroom on the ground floor of the house around 1:15am, when he was awoken by several loud explosions and observed an armed man running out of the room.

Shortly after, he felt a burning sensation and realised he had been shot in his upper left leg.

Bagaloo raised an alarm and a relative contacted the police and emergency health services who responded and took him to the San Fernando General Hospital for treatment.

Police are investigating.
