Cops Bracing For More Bloodshed as Teen Shot Dead


TRINIDAD & TOBAGO — Central Division police are bracing for more bloodshed following the murder of 17-year-old Kevon Paul, who was gunned down a short distance from his Claxton Bay home on Sunday, the Trinidad Guardian has reported.

Witnesses said a relative was heard calling for “reinforcements” at the crime scene, demanding blood for the death of Paul.

Hours later, a man was shot in the leg near the scene of Paul’s murder and investigators are probing whether it was in retaliation, the Guardian said.

A report stated that around 8 pm Sunday, Paul was standing along Lodge Road Extension when a silver Nissan Tiida sedan stopped alongside him.

A gunman emerged and opened fire on Paul, who attempted to run but was hit several times.

The gunman then got back into the car and the driver drove off. Paul died on the scene.
