An Amalgamated security guard has been shot and killed.
55-year old Dennis Noel's murder brought the 2016 toll to 198.
The incident took place in Arouca Tuesday night.
CNC3 has been told one of his responsibilities was shuttling prisoners to and from the courts.
Investigations are ongoing and it is believed that Noel was one of the officers who would report the smuggling of contraband.
The killing comes on the heels of the murder of police constable Jason Cyril John and army corporal Jerry Leacock.
