WARNING: THIS REPORT CONTAINS SENSITIVE VIDEO OF A SHOOTING INCIDENT.

A closed circuit television (CCTV) recording shows how a former convict was shot at a New Grant supermarket on Monday morning.

The 32-year-old man, Verne Sambury (aka Pomba) succumbed to his wounds and died at the San Fernando General Hospital Monday evening.

Police reports on Monday had indicated that he was shot during a break-in at the Persad D Food King supermarket when he rushed at an armed security guard with a bottle.

The video firstly shows Sambury, in all-white, walking out of the supermarket.

The security guard, in a checkered shirt, can be seen handing something to a cashier, who then pointed to Sambury.

The security guard then walked over to Sambury - who was already outside of the supermarket - and handed him the item.

Sambury was then restrained by the security guard as he attempted to get back in.

After a brief tussle, in which Sambury appeared to have reached for something in a stack near the door, the guard then drew his firearm.

The video showed Sambury gesticulating and the guard pointing his weapon at him.

After a moment, Sambury appeared again to reach for an item in a stack near the door and it appeared that at that point, the security guard opened fire.

Sambury stumbled but managed to stay to his feet and continued to gesticulate before walking away.

The video ended with the security guard standing by the doorway with his gun in hand and Sambury standing outside the supermarket.

Another video which was circulating on social media on Monday, showed Sambury lying on the ground in bloody clothes as onlookers ask why he was shot.

Police say Sambury had previously been charged with several offences and was recently released from prison.
