A 40-year-old fisherman was fatally shot at his home last night. Dead is Matthew Baptiste of Rest House Village, Mayaro.

Reports stated that around 8:30 pm, Baptiste was watching television with his common-law wife when he heard someone outside his home calling.  Baptiste got up and went to the front door. His wife told police that she then heard several loud explosions and hid in the TV room. She went looking for her husband shortly after and found him bleeding on the floor of a bedroom.

An autopsy is expected to be done next week at the Forensic Science Centre. 

Officers of the Homicide Bureau of Investigations Region 3 are investigating.
