Before killing Kevon Dominic, a masked gunman told Dominic’s girlfriend to look away before firing the fatal shots.

Dominic, 31 and his girlfriend, Shurin Ramkissoonsingh, 32 were lying awake in bed at their SS Erin Road, Siparia, home at around 10.30 pm on Thursday when the gunman crept into the house and the bedroom.

Dominic sat up when he saw the man. Ramkissoonsingh told investigators the gunman muttered “Is Wha” and Dominic responded, “Is Wha.”

The gunman then told Ramkissoonsingh: “Don’t watch.”

A petrified Ramkissoonsingh told police the intruder opened fire, killing Dominic on the spot. The gunman then ran down a hill and escaped.

District Medical Officer Dr Vasant Basdeo viewed the body and ordered it removed to the Forensic Science Centre.
