(TRINIDAD EXPRESS) — The murder toll continues to escalate with the shooting death of a Diego Martin man on Friday night.
The victim has been identified as Michael Mungroo. His death and that of Roni Henson Bruzal and Daniel Renaldo Bute, who were also both killed on Friday night in Couva, have taken the murder toll for the year so far to 88.
For the corresponding period last year, the toll stood at 98.
Police reports state that sometime around 11.30 p.m., residents at Covigne Road, Diego Martin, heard a volley of explosions. After investigating, they found Mungroo, who lived in the area, with multiple bullet wounds to the body.
Western Division officers and the Emergency Heath Services (EHS) were contacted, but by the time they arrived, Mungroo was already dead.
Officers of the Region I Homicide Bureau of investigations are continuing enquiries.
