Trini gunned down in Brooklyn, USA

Thursday, April 18 2013

A 22-YEAR-OLD Trinidad immigrant was gunned down on the steps of a Linden Blvd apartment complex in Flatbush, Brooklyn on Tuesday. According to a report on the New York Daily News website, the victim who yesterday was still unidentified, was shot five times in his chest at about 3.45 pm on Tuesday.

“I just saw the crowd disperse, kids were coming home from school,” said the superintendent of a building, across the street. “I saw a lady with her kids make the sign of the cross.” Rescuers rushed the man, whose name has not been released, to Kings County Hospital, but he could not be saved.

Residents on the block said the victim went by the nickname “UB” — which stands for Unknown Boy — and that he had immigrated to the US from Trinidad. After losing a job at a burger joint in downtown Brooklyn, he had been helping out at a nearby salon on Flatbush Avenue, neighbors said. “Honestly, he was a good dude. He was a working dude,” said one resident who did not wish to give his name. “But he hung around with the wrong dudes.”
