PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) – Trinidad and Tobago recorded its 100th murder for the year after a 29-year-old father of three was shot and killed on Monday.

Police said that Jeffon ‘Boatie’ Jordan was shot as he walked near his home in Santa Cruz, north east of Port of Spain. He was one of six people killed during the last 72 hours.

The first murder for this year occurred on January 2, when Pastor Casimir Khan, 52, was shot after bandits stormed his Arima home seeking a large gold chain that Khan’s son, Ezra Khan, was wearing at the time.

Last year 407 people were murdered in Trinidad and Tobago.
