Six murders over the weekend have pushed the murder toll to 30 for the year so far.
The latest incident occurred in Carenage on Sunday night with the murder of Jamal Moses.
Police said Moses was standing along the road in Mt Pleasant around 8 pm when gunmen shot him several times about the body. He died on the scene.
Moses’ murder followed an unrelated double murder at Bangladesh in St Joseph. In that incident, the victims were identified as Krystal Heeralal and Keron Rampersad.

And that too isn't certain yet, because it's the Divali holiday, and it must be first declared.
