Three more murders

Monday, December 4, 2017

A community lime among neighbours in Couva turned tragic yesterday when gunmen opened fire on the group, killing Dwayne Callender.

Reports are that neighbours had gathered at the apartment buildings along June Street, Lisas Gardens, on Saturday night and were liming into yesterday morning when the attack occurred. Police were told by a relative that around 7. 10 am yesterday she was awakened by the gunshots. She checked outside and saw Callender, her cousin, lying in the carpark with gunshot wounds to the back and thigh.

Callender, 29, a pipe-fitter, was taken to the Couva District Health Facility where he died while being treated.

His father, Wayne, said he was liming a short distance away from their home. He said the lime had just finished when three gunmen came and began shooting.
