The trinidad Guardian / A Cocorite man was ambushed at his home yesterday following a Facebook post by relatives who refused to be chased out of their hometown.

According to police, Kareem “Fari” Ifill, 36, of Harding Place, Cocorite was killed after relatives stated they were not allowing members of the Muslims gang to chase him out of the area.

Soon after the post, gunmen opened fire on his home, killing him. Police said there is an ongoing war between criminal gangs for control of turf in the community.

Police reports stated that Ifill was at his apartment around 1.45 am when three men opened fire from the roadway and shot him through the window.

Ifill was taken to the nearby St James Medical Health Facility where he died about two hours later.

Investigators told the T&T Guardian the killing was directly linked to the Facebook post.

Relatives said they were not prepared to speak with the media yesterday.
