SHOT DEAD: Kazim Ali...

A DOUBLE murder in El Socorro on Sunday night has pushed the country’s murder toll to 401 with one more day left in 2013. According to police, at about 10.40 pm, a group of persons were liming at Ali’s roti shop’s car park on Back Chain Street following a children’s party. A car pulled up in front the car park, a man exited the back of the car and began firing at the group.

Four persons were hit, police said, as the gunmen drove off. The four were taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC) in Mt Hope on the tray of the van whose driver was flagged down by frantic members of the liming group. Anthony Bridgelal was pronounced dead on arrival at the EWMSC while Kazim Ali died while undergoing treatment. Bhudath Ramlogan was shot in his chest and Rakesh Ramoutar was shot in his legs. Both men are in stable condition. At the Forensic Science Centre in St James yesterday, a close female relative of Ali, 45, said Ali was shot four months ago in his right leg by thieves who attempted to steal his vehicle. She described him as a “very mellow, outgoing person.”

She stated that Ali had a business at Power Boats in Chaguaramas Bay transporting persons down the islands. She said his face always had a serious expression, but when one got to know him, he was a very generous, down-to-earth person. The relative said Ali was found alive, crouched on the ground with his hands over his head. She said he was sot in his face, head and stomach.

“He was not a rowdy fella. He loved to fish and lime by Caura River with “The Caura Crew.” All the fellas who got shot were part of the Crew. I would miss everything about him. He should not have died the way he did. It shake up everybody because they know what kind of person he was,” she said. She told reporters that Bridgelal was from Bamboo Settlement and was called ‘‘Ambulance’’, because he drove an ambulance and worked at St Ann’s Psychiatric Hospital. She said they met him about one year ago and he was well liked.

The double homicide followed the shooting death of a St Vincent man Verlon Tash, 32 who was killed on Sunday at about 8 am. Police said residents of Argyle Street, Belmont, heard several loud explosions and later found Tash on the ground, bleeding heavily from several gunshot injuries.

Friends said Tash moved to Tobago from St Vincent and the Grenadines about one year ago, and had moved to Trinidad with them a few weeks ago when they found a job for him at a gas station in Woodbrook. “I don’t know why he was killed as no one really knew him. He had no friends other than us and all he did was go to work and back home. He didn’t have anything either. All he had was one pair of sneakers, one pants, one work shirt, and one other shirt. I don’t know why. He was a friendly person,” she said.
