Sup Travellers?! Things got really ugly today in Port of Spain when a 16 year old girl was shot and killed in an apartment at lower Duncan Street, Port of Spain this afternoon. The reason for the killing hasn't been specified but it allegedly has something to do with the man who she went to visit. The man is allegedly a member of a gang Read on.


According to reports from the Trinidad Express, 16 year old Rashida Gomez was shot dead while visiting a man who was allegedly a member of a gang. The shooting took place at around 2pm Wednesday afternoon (Today) at an apartment at lower Duncan Street, Port of Spain. The man who Rashida went to visit was also shot but he managed to survive. Rashida died at the Port of Spain General Hospital from multiple gunshot wounds. It is alleged that the man was the initial target and young Gomez was just at the wrong place at the wrong time. But that is simply an "alledgement."

Side note: Alledgement is not a word I just thought it sounded cool.


But there is a bit of a twist to the story. We can all speculate that Rashida was at the wrong place at the wrong time but maybe she was a part of the whole raucous herself. Earlier today, the 17 year old cousin of Rashida, Nyam Antoine, was shot and killed outside an apartment at upper Duncan Street. Antoine was reported to be dragged out of his mother's apartment and shot multiple times. The killings are the latest in a series of gang related murders sweeping across the city and they appeared to be linked somehow. 

Rashida's death could have had something to do with the death of her cousin. I don't want to jump to any conclusions or make any speculations but I believe that the murders were in fact linked in some way. There were two other murders today in Port of Spain and they may have all been related. Let's hope that innocent people don't get hurt in the apparent gang wars occurring in the capital city. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

One Response so far.
