A 46-year-old man was beaten to death and left partially submerged in a drain filled with water, in an area known as Hell Yard in Beetham on Thursday.
However, an autopsy is expected to confirm the actual cause of death.
According to a police report, at about 3.30 pm yesterday, Paul Timothy Adams—who was popularly known as "Speedy"—was found partially submerged face down in a water-filled drain at 13th street.
Police described Adams as a drug addict and believed that the circumstances surrounding his death were drug-related.
Investigations are continuing.
Police have identified Dwayne King as the man who was shot during rush hour traffic along the Beetham Highway earlier today.
King was attacked just around 8.30 am by two masked men armed with high-powered weapons near the flyover at National Petroleum. He was driving his silver Nissan Tiida along the westbound lane of the highway at the time.
The gunmen fled the scene in their vehicle in the chaos which ensued, hitting other vehicles as they weaved through traffic and used the highway's shoulder to escape.
Laventille West MP and acting Attorney General Fitzgerald Hinds has filed a police report about yesterday's incident in Beetham Gardens and police have launched an immediate investigation.
Police Public Information Officer ASP Michael Jackman confirmed to CNC3 that MP Hinds made an official report about the incident to the police.
While touring flood-stricken Beetham Gardens, water was thrown on Hinds and Councilor Akil Audian, prompting them to flee.
Hinds was seen leaving the Besson Street Police Station this morning.
