Four shot dead in New Grant

In a dark bushy field in New Grant during the wee hours of Monday morning, four people including two Venezuelans were lined up and shot dead by multiple gunmen.

Police have identified the victims as Aaron George, 35, Venezuelan national Guimar Jose Rausseo Marcano, aka Maria, and Darnel Mitchell, 35, of Sado Road, South Manzanilla Road, Manzanilla.

The fourth victim, also a Venezuelan, was identified as Jose Seranno. Police have no information on his occupation or address.

Police said George had three addresses, the first in Balmain Couva where he lived with his wife, another in Fyzabad and the third at Hope Road, Princes Town which he shared with Marcano.

Initial investigations reveal that there was a drug link to the quadruple killings.

A source who requested anonymity said the four victims were brought to the dark area where they were killed execution-style.

George attempted to run and he fell face down on the right side of Daily Road, New Grant.

The other three bodies were found lying face down a short distance off the road.

The area does not have electricity or street lights and is usually cultivated by gardeners.

Police said around 6:30 am, gardener Krishendath Rooplal was on his way to tend to his crops when he saw the first body.

He called the police and three more bodies were discovered.

All of the bodies bore bullet wounds to the back of the head and lower back.
