Relatives of murdered Mc Donald’s manager Ashmeed Mohammed believe they will get justice for his death.

Speaking with Guardian Media yesterday, Mohammed’s sister, Racine, sent a message to her brother’s killers.

She said: “I want the three of them to know that we serve an Almighty God, Jesus Christ and we will get justice. Maybe not here on earth but we will get justice.”

The woman said her parents were deeply traumatised by the Ashmeed’s murder and intend to “leave everything in God’s hands.”

She said her family remains in the dark over the progress of the police investigations.

“We have not heard from any of them. Nothing. We heard that a police sergeant (name called) was assigned lead but we don’t even know what he looks like. He has not contacted us,” she said.

Mohammed was at the Cipriani Avenue, Port-of-Spain fast food restaurant on Sunday after the business was closed when he responded to a knock on the door.

Police said he opened it and after a few minutes he was heard begging for his life.

Co-workers heard three gunshots and later found Mohammed dead near the door.

Guardian Media understands investigators have gotten a lead into Mohammed’s murder which suggests three men used a known homeless person to lure Mohammed to open the door. The incident occurred after 11 pm.

“It seems that the homeless man was used by the men because people saw Mohammed helping out the same man many times before in giving him food.

“So, it is suspected that the plan was to rob the establishment but to get Mohammed to open the door but that’s when it backfired on the gunmen. They shot Mohammed dead and as a result, they had to escape without any loot,” a source close to the investigation said.

Investigations are continuing.
