A 19-year-old man from Laventille, who was wanted in connection with a series of shootings, was killed in a shootout with police officers yesterday.

According to a police report, at about 2.30 am Inter-Agency Task Force members went to the Picton Road, Laventille home of Shane Fraser to execute a search warrant. However, the officers claimed they were shot at the Fraser. The officers returned fire, shooting Fraser, who later died of his injuries at the Port-of-Spain General Hospital.

In an unrelated incident, a 23-year-old Talparo man was arrested by police after a loaded revolver was found in his possession. Acting on intelligence a team of officers went to a popular bar in Arima where they searched the suspect and found a .38 revolver loaded with two rounds of ammunition.

The team consisted officers of the Northern Division Special Investigations Unit (NDSIU), Northern Division Area East Task Force and Arima CID.

The man will appear before an Arima magistrate today. NDSIU’s PC Kerr is investigating.
