Businessman shot dead

A Ch­agua­nas busi­ness­man was mur­dered in El So­cor­ro this morn­ing mo­ments he dropped his wife to work. Shi­raz Ali, 52, of Ed­in­burgh 500, was shot dead as he sat in his white Maz­da sta­tion wag­on on Bound­ary Road Ex­ten­sion.

Ali dropped his wife off at Fla­vorite Foods Lim­it­ed at around 6.30am. As he drove past the Aranguez North Sec­ondary School a car pulled along­side him and one of the oc­cu­pants opened fire, killing him. Po­lice are cur­rent­ly on the scene of the mur­der.


In an­oth­er ear­ly morn­ing shoot­ing, Nigel Bel­lot was killed at his home on Carr Lane, Bel­mont.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, the 55-year-old man was in his bed­room with his girl­friend when he heard a bang­ing noise at his door. When he opened the door, a gun­man shot him mul­ti­ple times about the body. He died at the scene.

Po­lice say Bel­lot had been de­port­ed back to T&T a few years ago but was not known to them.

Guardian Me­dia will give up­dates on these de­vel­op­ing sto­ries as they come to hand.
