Cousins shot dead in Matura

By NEWSDAY REPORTER Monday, June 19 2017

TWO cousins were yesterday killed after liming with friends along the Toco Main Road, Matura early yesterday morning.

According to police reports, 21-year-old Jhavon Roberts of Salibya and 27-year-old Mark Lewis of Valencia were in a white Nissan Teana car which was parked in the driveway of a house when they were shot and killed. Residents heard the loud explosions and contacted the Matura Police Station. Cpl Stafford and PC Louis responded and cordoned off the scene.

When Newsday visited the area yesterday, one man who lives nearby said the gunshots woke him up at about 5 am. He said he heard about six shots but did not look outside. He said it was only as the sun rose and he saw the police he realised that something serious happened.

ASP Gobin, Inspector Ettienne and Cpl Greaux together with officers from the Homicide Bureau North processed the scene and ordered the bodies be removed to the Sangre Grande mortuary. They would then be taken to the Forensics Science Centre, St James on Tuesday. Police say they are exploring several motives. One of those motives was that the two men were followed by someone they had an argument with the night before.

Police said this was the first murder in the area for the year. A similar incident occurred sometime last year.

As news circulated on Facebook about the murders, many expressed their condolences. One relative said, “my cousin didn’t deserve this.” While another person who knew Roberts said it was a “sad situation” and described him as a “high spirited fun going individual.”
