A 50-year-old Gasparillo resident was shot dead at his home last night. He has been identified as Wendell Scott (alias Tallo) of Baptiste Street, Charles Street, Gasparillo.

Guardian Media understands police received information that at around 9 pm on Tuesday January 11th, two men went to the apartment house in which Wendell Scott lived and called him by his alias ‘Tallo’. Scott, who was at the back of the house, was confronted by the two men and they had an argument.  Scott was shot at least three times and the men reportedly ransacked the house.

Shortly afterwards, a resident saw Scott lying under the house with gunshot wounds about his body.  He was said to be gasping for breath.

The police arrived and took Scott to the San Fernando General Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police are still trying to determine if anything was stolen.

Investigations are continuing.
