Man shot on Diego Martin Main Road

One man is nursing gunshot wounds following a shooting incident on the Diego Martin Main Road on Thursday.

Gunmen opened fire on a man known to police as 'Blacka'.

Investigators told Guardian Media that just after midday a white Nissan X-Trail drove out of La Puerta Avenue and shot at the victim standing on the Western Main Road.

The victim ran in a westerly direction and was pursued by the gunman who alighted from the vehicle and shot several times.

The gunmen then escaped in the vehicle.

Police say the victim was rushed to the St James Medical Facility and later to the Port of Spain General Hospital.

Investigators say the victim is in stable condition and believe the shooting was gang-related.
