A 26-year-old T&T national has been shot dead in Canada, leaving behind his wife and 18-month old child.
Police say David Eminess and his 29-year-old friend Quinn Taylor had gone to Chinatown on Sunday to watch a game and get a drink.
Police say there was a crowd of people and a fight broke out. Both Eminess and Taylor got caught in the crossfire and were killed.
Eminess left behind a wife, daughter and a "bright future" as an electrician.
His wife Isabelle Promesse says they had a happy marriage.
She says she has been struggling to explain the tragic loss to her 18-month-old daughter Kiyara.
"The first night she barely slept, you know, she pointed at the door, then she kept saying daddy, daddy" said Promesse. "There's nothing I can say to her."
Eminess was just two hours of class away from completing a post-secondary preparations course and then he was set to start an electricians program at George Brown college.
Organizers at Parkdale's Project Read remember Eminess as a dedicated and supportive student.
Eminess came to Canada six years ago from Trinidad and worked odd jobs, while going to school. He was also working to get Canadian citizenship.
