Used-car dealer Sheron Sukhdeo was shot and killed last night in an apparent ambush along Caroni Savannah Road, Charlieville.
Sukhdeo was reportedly shot repeatedly near the home of his mother-in-law and taken for treatment at the Chaguanas Health Facility.
He owned a string of used-car lots which advertised the sale of luxury vehicles as well as a fleet of high-end vehicles including Lamborghini, Bentley and Mercedes Benz.
Last year, he was hauled before the court after his wife, Rachael, posted images of domestic abuse on social media. She refused to testify and the charges were dropped.
Sukhdeo had been before the courts charged with receiving two stolen vehicles and is on $200,000 bail.
There were reports of another fatal shooting in Never Dirty, Morvant last night after an unidentified man was shot dead on the street.
