A 47-year-old taxi driver was killed during an apparent robbery early this morning.
According to reports, Kenneth Parris, of Lyndon Street, Curepe, was last seen alive around 2 am when he left Port-of-Spain to transport passengers to San Juan.
Shortly after departing, Parris crashed his car at the roundabout at the Maritime Flyover.
Emergency Health Services (EHS) personnel, who responded to the scene, discovered that Parris had been shot four times.
He was taken to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital where he remained warded in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) until he succumbed to his injuries around 9.30 am.
Parris' body was then transferred to the Forensic Science Centre in St James where a post-mortem was performed.
Police believe Parris may have been killed after he challenged his attackers, who posed as passengers. They also suspect that his attackers fled the scene after the crash.
Parris' vehicle is expected to be dusted for fingerprints and searched for other forensic evidence which may assist police in determining the identities of his attackers.
