Two Dead, Several Injured as Gunmen Open Fire on a “Lime”


PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad – Two people were shot and killed and several others injured during a shooting incident in Diego Martin, police have confirmed.

The authorities have named Jabari Goodridge, 21, whose body was found in nearby bushes and Adrian ‘Blackie’ Charles, 39, who died a hospital, as the victims of the gun attack. At least four other people, including a woman, were also injured during the shooting.
