A man who was freed of a murder charge a few years ago was killed on Tuesday morning in Diego Martin. Police said Chike Portillo was a member of the Muslim gang.

He was at a job site on Spaniol Road off Covigne Road, Diego Martin, at around 9 am when two masked gunmen shot him several times about his body. Portillo died at the scene.

In an unrelated incident, on Monday around 5:30 pm, officers from North Eastern Division went to Maryland Hill, Belmont, near a former primary school where they found a body wrapped in plastic and an orange coloured piece of cloth in a drain.

The body is believed to be of a man from La Puerta, Diego Martin.

Investigations are continuing.
