A 15 year old Trinidad and Tobago schoolboy whose father was murdered recently, was himself shot dead in Chaguanas on Thursday, according to the Trinidad Express.
Reports say Mohammed Ali was gunned down while playing cards near his home.
Ali had lived with his father at Diego Martin, but after the killing moved to Moon Crescent, Edinburgh 500, the Express said.
He was a pupil of the Carapichaima West Secondary School.
According to police, at around 10 p.m. he was playing cards with other men at an eatery at the Village Plaza when a white AD wagon pulled up.
Police were told the occupants opened fire and sped off.
Ali was shot in the head and died within minutes of the shooting.
Officers of the Central Division Task Force, Chaguanas CID and Homicide Region III responded.
An autopsy is expected to be performed today (Friday) at the Forensic Sciences Centre, Federation Park.
