Sup Travellers?! This weekend started off pretty cool with very little bad news until I heard about the horrific incidents that occurred in Diego Martin recently. According to reports from The Trinidad Express a Diego Martin family was shot and killed by gunmen.
A 33 year old gang member named Timothy James, a Diego Martin mother and father were all shot dead by gunmen at around 5 p.m on Thursday. The gunmen's main target was the 33 year old son but after the gunmen realized that his parents were also at home, they killed them as well. The four gunmen climbed a steep, treacherous hill and located their target, gang member Timothy James. He was outside his house when they found him and shot him. His parents, George James, 50, and Theresa Nelson, 55, walked out their house when they heard the gunshots. The gunmen then turned to them and opened fire, hitting both James and Nelson several times about their bodies. They died instantly
It was also reported by the Trinidad Express that earlier that same day in a totally unrelated but related incident, another man by the name of Andre Ross was killed in Diego Martin. The man is said to be the first cousin of the murdered gang member. It took place at around 3 p.m. on Sierra Leone Road, Diego Martin, where gunmen walked up to the 20-year-old Andre Ross, who was walking along the road, and shot him several times about the body, killing him on the spot.
This is the worst news I heard for the week. It wasn't just one man that died but him and his family. Timothy probably pissed off the gunman and was probably guilty of something but his parents didn't do anything. Sigh. I hope that Justice is served. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed
