An early morning fire in downtown Port of Spain has gutted several businesses and caused over a quarter million dollars in damages.
The fire started just after 9 am this morning.
Witnesses say they saw smoke coming from a closed booth and alerted the Fire Service. However, by the time they arrived, the fire had already consumed the entire building. The firefighters did manage to contain the blaze and stop the fire from spreading to the nearby New City Mall.
Good Friday was marred for the family of Quincy Alleyne.
The resident of Queen Street in Port of Spain was shot and killed around one o' clock this afternoon.
Police reports indicate that the thirty-two-year-old was at the corner of Independence Square and Nelson street, plying a private car for hire. He was said to be standing outside of the car when a man came out of another vehicle and shot Quincy several times and took his gold chain.
Alleyne was taken to hospital by emergency health services; he was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.
