Sup Travellers?! I got another heart breaking story for you coming out of the twin island republic of Trinidad and Tobago. A 19 year old by the name of Shakeel Bethel was gunned down in front of a bar in San Fernando.  According to latest reports, Shakeel died at the San Fernando General Hospital while undergoing emergency surgery. 

Police told the Trinidad Express that Bethel was liming with friends at a nightclub in La Romaine when he got into a fight with another man.  Bethel, of Stella Street, La Romaine, left the nightclub and went to a pub at Cipero Street, San Fernando. Police said Bethel was standing outside the bar when a masked man walked up to him and fired two shots. The gunman manged to escape by jumping into a vehicle.

Bethel's aunt Peggy told the Express on Sunday, “I saw him dressed to go to a party last night. This morning I got a call that he was shot and we should go to the hospital. When we got there he was already dead.” 

We supported him in everything he did. While he was going to school he worked at KFC and then he was working with his dad in construction. His parents and grandparents, everyone supported him. We are church people, but Shakeel loved to party and we didn’t have a problem with that,” she said.


Another aunt, Audra Bethel said, “We always looking at the news and seeing all these people getting killed. I didn’t know that my nephew would be one of them. He was our first nephew and the other boys looked up to him,” she said. 

Nowadays when you go out you should probably try to avoid getting into any altercations with people that you don't know. People now are trigger happy maniacs. RIP to Shakeel, it's obvious that he died way too soon. What else can I say? My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
