A San Francique man, who relatives described as a role model to his friends and family, was brutally gunned down by a lone gunman on Thursday night.

According to police reports, at about 8.15pm, Sheldon Sammy, 29, better known as “Pie”, of 457 Pluck Road, San Francique, had just left a gym located at Bhopsingh Street, Penal and was about to enter his car when a lone gunman walked up behind him and shot Sammy four times at point blank range. He was shot in his back, neck and head. One of Sammy’s friends, who was also about to enter Sammy’s car, raised an alarm following the shooting. Sammy, a fabricator, was rushed to the Siparia Health Facility but was pronounced dead on arrival at the institution.

When Newsday visited Sammy’s home yesterday, friends and family members were busy erecting a tent while his grieving father, Winston Sammy, 53, was at a loss for words as to the reason for his only son’s death. Nothing was taken by the gunman.

“He born and grow up in church,” the elder Sammy said, adding, “it was work, church, gym, that was his routine.”

He said his son, who recently joined a full gospel church at Debe, had committed his life to the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Anywhere it have alcohol or wrongdoing, he didn’t want to hear about that,” he said, adding, “in fact a lot of his friends had stopped drinking and smoking and joined him in church and the gym.

“He was a good example to the youth in society. He lived a good life, he did not interfere with people. He was always looking to see how he could help people,” the grieving father said. He said his son was preparing to enter his first bodybuilding show later this year. Sammy was the second of three children.

An autopsy is expected to be performed on Sammy’s body sometime next week.
