A motive is yet to be established in the killing of a man, a former health officer at the Piarco International Airport, at his home on Tuesday.
The victim has been identified as Darren Manoo, 68, of Beckles Street, Tacarigua.
Police said the body of Manoo was discovered on the road by a relative at about 5:30 pm on Tuesday.
A relative told police that Manoo was at home when she heard several gunshots from by the road.
The woman said she made checks and saw Manoo lying facedown on the road with several gunshot wounds about the body.
The police were called in and the scene was cordoned off and secured.
The District Medical Officer arrived shortly after, viewed the body, made a pronouncement and ordered its removal pending a Post Mortem Examination at the Forensic Science Centre.
