T&T pathologist: Slain Lindeners were shot with live rounds
-says bullets may have been fired from handgun
Trinidad-based pathologist Professor Hubert Daisley yesterday revealed that the three men killed during the protest in Linden last week, were all shot through the heart with what appeared to be bronze-capped rounds.
“These were metal. They were capped with bronze looking caps, almost like gold but I think they were bronze. The core of these was [made] of lead. These were not rubber by any chance, they were metal,” Daisley stated at a press conference hosted subsequent to the completion of the autopsies on the bodies of Ron Somerset, Allan Lewis and Shemroy Bouyea, who were shot dead last Wednesday after police opened fire on persons protesting a hike in electricity tariffs at the Mackenzie-Wismar Bridge in Linden. In addition to the deaths of Somerset, of Amelia’s Ward, Ivan Lewis, of Wismar Housing Scheme, and Bouyea, of Wisroc Housing Scheme, at least two people were injured as a result of the shooting.
