Trinidad Express / GUNMEN broke into a house and killed a woman and two men at Bridal Road, Jerningham Junction, Cunupia on Saturday. A baby was grazed by a bullet.
Binta James, 27, her boyfriend Wellington Thomas, 31 were asleep in their apartment with their one-year-old son and James’s four-year-old daughter when the killers came.
James and Thomas were shot dead.
Also in the house was Kiston Guy, 32. He was shot dead.
James’ baby was found clutching his mother’s lifeless body. The infant boy was not physically harmed.
Neighbour Nirmala Seukaran said she ran over to the house next door, armed with only a flashlight to discover her neighbours dead in bed.
“I heard these explosions and I thought it was fireworks. But then Michelle come knocking on the door screaming that someone shot them. I run out and I had a flashlight with me and found the baby holding onto Binta’s leg. I tried to shake them (James and Thomas) but there was blood on them. I take the children and bring them by me. I called the police,” she said.
