(Trinidad Express) A 25-year-old Laventille man, who police believed to be on the run from his enemies, was gunned down at his aunt’s home in Sangre Grande on Sunday night.

Anthony Robert Gill, described by police as a known “shooter”, lived at Basilon Street, Laventille but according to the police a few weeks ago he moved into his aunt’s home at Cedar Drive, North Eastern Settlement, Sangre Grande.

Police said that around 10 p.m. on Sunday, Gill’s aunt was awakened by the sound of five gunshots.

She got up to investigate and saw her nephew lying face down on the road outside her home with multiple gunshots about his body.

She called the police and a team of officers led by Supt Neville Sankar and Insp Beverly Paul visited the scene where they carried out enquiries and gathered evidence including five spent shells. The body was taken to the Sangre Grande mortuary.

A post mortem done at the Forensic Science Centre yesterday concluded that Gill died as a result of the several gunshots wounds about his body.
